Welcome AYC Cruisers!



“Land was created to provide a place for boats to visit.”  - Brooks Atkinson.

Our 2023 cruise calendar provided many good memories and opportunities to meet new friends and reconnect with old.  Thanks to all who participated and a special shout out to those who volunteered to serve as Cruise Captains in 2023…. we couldn’t do it without you (seriously)!    

We are looking forward to another great year in 2024.    A full slate of Cruises has been planned bookended with the traditional Shakedown Cruise in early April and finishing in La Connor for the Lighted Christmas Boat Parade Cruise in December.   

Cruise summaries and pictures will be posted in the Knot News and  
AYC Facebook page and are great resources to stay in touch with the latest cruise related activities. 


Also, keep in mind that the Anacortes Yacht Club encourages and supports spontaneous cruises, in the form of Pop-up cruises, during the year.   


If you would like to volunteer to be a Cruise Captain for one of our planned cruises in 2024 or if you would like to invite other AYC cruisers to join you on a Pop-up cruise, please reach out to us and we will get you squared away with all the support you’ll need.


Thanks again and we look forward to a rendezvous with you out in the Salish Sea!
