Use Reciprocals – Prize Winner to be Announced!

Again this year, our Club ran a contest to see who used the most reciprocals during this cruising season.  (Last year the winner used a dozen reciprocals).

Save money, see the world, and enjoy the cruising by using some of our great reciprocal berths around the Northwest.   Check the Club directory, website, or   yachtdestinations.org   for the latest arrangements.

At the end of October, we will ask for email feedback for tracking the reciprocals you used.   The winner will get a prize – yet to be announced.

Dan proudly presented the perpetual trophy/plaque to the Port Townsend Yacht Club at their October Meeting, as PTYC has been at the center of our local Fleet’s success.  We now have around 42 boats in our local PT fleet and we continue to get even more.

“Our fleet, here on the peninsula has become one of the really hot and most competitive fleets around, always making a good showing at all of the regattas we attend.”
