March 14    

Chart Night is an informal gathering to discuss our Northwest cruising waters. The format is simple … some beer, a table, some charts, and beer.  Powerpoint and such are discouraged .. they idea is talk about the currents, the bears, the rapids, the coves, the potlachs, the ancorages … and of course the sea monsters and coasties.

Al will bring charts and talk about the cool parts of his trip .. getting through the narrows, finding wind, sleeping on the trampoline.

THIS IS ALSO VHF NIGHT:  Please feel free to bring a handset so you can chat with the Shilshole community on VHF. 

Folks can contact me at   Steve Schwartz, Aquila. L61
