Yacht/Boating/Cruising Clubs

Joining a group of fellow boaters is a great way to learn from others with a similar passion; more about your boat and how to use it, getting involved in boating-related activities (ie racing if you’re a cruiser, youth lessons), and of course, the social aspect of potlucks, dances and meeting new friends.  There are several nearby clubs and organizations that are listed here:

Corinthian Yacht Club Sloop Tavern Yacht Club
Shilshole Bay Yacht Club Puget Sound Crusing Club
Seattle Yacht Club Seattle Singles Yacht Club
Olympic Yacht Club

Spring is Here! Finally…

After 8 months, we are finally getting back to 70+°!  Neighbors are coming out of hiding, dock box conversations ensue, and boats are getting cleaned!

Here’s a couple reminders that may help…

  • The Port has a great haz-mat recycling program! Used oil, diesel and hydraulic fluid goes in tank near M2 restroom; used batteries, gasoline, and antifreeze/coolant go to Hazmat Box down near Seaview Boatyard (south end)
  • Garbage goes in the green waste container; all recycling goes in the yellow containers.
  • Please put your donated “junk” (items you no longer need but don’t want to toss) near the dumpster and not at the gate, so more people can see them.
  • Remind your guests and crew to park near the street in General Parking. Also, make sure your license plate tabs are up to date.  The Port can tow all illegally parked vehicles.
  • Please control your dogs (by your side or on a leash at all times) and please clean up after them! (the Seattle Leash Law is in effect on the docks, and Animal Control could be called for problem pets)
  • To avoid smash and grab car break-ins, do not leave items visible in your car.
  • There have been prowlers on the docks and in the waterways so please lock your boat, dinghy, etc and please call the Port’s cell phone, 601-4089, if you see anything/anyone suspicious.

Thank you for helping keep this a nice place to moor and live!
