Port Madison Yacht Club
REVISED: due to thunderstorms and rain in the forecast for Saturday, the fall cruise has been moved to the following weekend October 17 & 18.
Great news! We can have an official cruise this fall. On October 17 & 18, we’ll be cruising to a closer location that I have always wanted to cruise to. We’ll be anchoring outside Lemolo Cove in the southeast corner of Liberty Bay. Kim said it’s the best views of the Olympics from anywhere in Liberty Bay.
For details, see the events page: Liberty Bay - Lemolo Cove Cruise

Club Events and COVID-19
This week Governor Jay Inslee extended the state of emergency to all Washington counties and prohibited “any number of people from gathering in any public venue” until May 5th. Proclamation 20-13 states that this includes “social clubs, private clubs, golf clubs, [and] tennis clubs.” Considering these developments, we will be changing the following events and activities:
No Work Parties; Individual Work Credits
Until further notice, we will not be holding club work parties. For anyone who wants to earn work party credits during this moratorium, we will email and post on the club’s website a list of jobs and instructions on how to self-report to our work party managers the jobs you select and complete.
Limited Clubhouse Use
Until further notice, use the clubhouse at your own risk but do not hold any gatherings there. We do plan on having work party credits for cleaning the clubhouse, but please be particularly conscientious about cleaning all surfaces, doorknobs, utensils, etc. before and after using them, and do not visit the clubhouse if you are ill.
Best wishes to all.
