Port Madison Yacht Club
Jim Depue Memorial Race
February 20, 2021
The Port Madison Yacht club is thrilled to host the annual Jim Depue “Rum Race” on February 20th, 2021. The course is a 16.5 mile circuit between Bainbridge Island, Jefferson Head, West Point + Blakely Rock with North and South course directions available dependent on conditions. This year we are pleased to offer, “Quaran-Team”, Shorthanded and Cruising divisions to help as many boats as possible participate in this strange new world we live in. This Race is also the official kick off to the West Sound Sailing Associations 2021 championship series.
Update 2/24/2021: The revised racing results can be found here:

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.
