2018 Gunkholing in the Gulf Islands Cruise @ The Gulf Islands
Jul 5 – Jul 13 all-day

Reservations
Itinerary
Join us as we gunkhole through the Gulf Islands immediately following the 4th of July Cruise.  This cruise is being led by BYC member Rich Hanset who has cruised to these destinations many times and is very experienced.
The Gulf Islands have been one of Rich’s favorite areas for cruising for the last 15+ years because of the wide variety of venues, the more relaxed environment and the close proximity of the various bays and harbors, not to mention crabbing.  The relatively short distance between stops makes it perfect for power and sail boats and leaves lots of time for relaxation.
This cruise is designed to be flexible.  You can hop on or off the cruise as you wish and will have your choice of docking, mooring, or anchoring at most destinations.  If you decide to go to the dock, you will be responsible for making your own reservations.
For more details, click on Rich’s presentation below:
The deadline for signing up for this cruise is June 1st.

July 5  Roche Harbor to Port Sidney (dock)
