Welcome to Bellingham Yacht Club Cruising!

2020 promises to be another active cruising season with several fun cruises planned throughout the San Juan Islands & beyond.  In addition to our traditional favorites, we have joint cruises with other clubs and a couple of longer cruises. There are lots of opportunities for everyone to get involved in cruising with the club and it is a great way to make new friends! Remember to sign up as early as possible!

You can register for a cruise and view who is attending from the links in the calendar below or you can click the shortcut here to go directly to the “Upcoming BYC Cruises” which is a table containing links to each of this year’s cruise events.
