SYC Spring Cruise 'n' Snooze
Seattle Yacht Club runs their Cruise 'n' Snooze regatta twice a year, one in Spring and one in the Fall. Participants race from Shilshole Bay to Port Madison in the Puget Sound near Seattle, WA.  They spend the night at a yacht club outstation in Port Madison and race back the next day. While performance in the regattas does count toward the Club's 'Sailboat of the Year' competition it is generally considered fun racing and all boats are welcome and encouraged to participate. This is the one to do in your furniture forty or weekend cruiser, though participation is limited to SYC members.
