Don’t miss out on an opportunity to support out Youth Sailors while enjoying a tasty dinner. And you won’t want to miss out on all the fantastic items to be auctioned off in the Silent Auction…all for a worthy cause! Tickets sold out a week before this event last year so sign up soon.

BUY TICKETS HERE

All contributions go to the Bellingham Sailing Foundation for the benefit of Youth Sailing.  This year, proceeds will go towards the BYC Youth Sailing program and the Whatcom Sailing High School Team.

Cost
  • Tickets – $50
  • Sign up a table of 8 and receive a $50 Discount off your registration.

The event has been well attended in the past and raised enough funds to purchase two 29er dinghies, a 10-boat Opti trailer and a used Zodiac RIB this past year. As all boat owners are well aware there is always something else demanding attention and funds. This year we are continuing our campaign to purchase 10 new FJs for use by the BYC learn to sail program and High School Race Team.

Bring your family, friends, fleet members, company fellow employees, Dead Pirate members, Wheel and Keel members, school alumni and any one else you can think of to help support Youth Sailing in Bellingham!
