In the beginning......
2001 Found us in Poulsbo, with a fairly small raft-up...missing White Swan II due to a broken mast. Boats in attendance: Dunrushn, Glenn & Lorraine with cousins Mike & Kathy aboard; Nelle Bly, BJ & Trish; Quicksilver, Aaron & Julie and Run-Around-Sue, Clark and Sue. Pamela drove in for the evening and joined everybody for a great dinner at "That's A Some 'Italian Restaurante!" This was the historic event where Lorraine surveyed all the women in the restaurant as to how many pairs of shoes they owned. The average was somewhere around 20! Unfortunately we didn't get any really good photos as the "official" photographer didn't arrive until late AND forgot to take pictures! Jump to 2001-2002 photos
2002 We were in Port Ludlow, with a
BIG raft-up. Dunrushn, Nelle Bly, Quicksilver
and Run-Around-Sue were joined by Pamela & Cliff on White Swan II, Jeremy with
his new boat Storm Runner and James & Julia on Windlass. Anchored near, but
afraid to join the raft-up was Brook & John on Timepiece. Windlass's wonderfully
huge cockpit held the entire crowd for a potluck supper. All the "boys" took out
Jeremy's new Catalina 30 and showed him how to sail her!
2003 We didn't have a raft-up as we were scattered all over the sound and north...but we will make up for it in 2004!
2004...Winslow, Bainbridge Island. We definitely made up for not having a FYC raft-up in 2003! Unfortunately not all of the FYC boats could make it...Jeremy & Monica didn't have enough time off to sail up. But they joined us for the festivities and RACE on Sunday. Boats in the official raft-up were: Dunrushn (Glenn & Lorraine), Spirit of Freedom (Pamela & Cliff), Nelle Bly (BJ & Trish), White Swan (Bob & Dianna) and Anthem (Aaron & Julie). Rich, (who lives aboard his Catalina 30 Narrow Path in Winslow), provided us with some GREAT photos! Thanks Rich!!! He also participated in the race to Seattle and back. There was plenty of wind on Sunday for our race! Monica found out that the cockpit of a Tayana 37 can fill with water! And that it runs right out again! There was more than enough wind to break up the raft up...What a mess! :>) Read about it in Dunrushn's Logbook! Friends stopping by and joining us for a meal or two were Shane and Kendra, James, Julia and Emma of Windlass and of course Rich of Narrow Path. The weekend ended with Dunrushn and Spirit of Freedom heading north for their 2004 Gunkholing and Bob & Dianna beginning the final prep for their cruising adventure! Jump to 2004 Memorial Day photos
