AYC DOWNTOWN RALLIES 2023
Bring your boat and join us out on the water
Captans, Crew, & Guests:
This year the Astoria Yacht Club will reinstitute the Thursday Night Rally, with sailing both above and below the Astoria bridge, as conditions favor. We are hoping to help boat owners who need a crew and club members that need a
ride to get together on a regular basis this season.
The tides will be cooperating to provide easy current conditions as listed on the bi-weekly schedule below. All members are invited to get out their boats and enjoy sailing in company from roughly 1730 to 1930 hours, then to gather at the
clubroom for a simple snack of hot soups and breads. Of course, beverages are available for the usual donations, or you are welcome to bring your own.
The crew signup form on the AYC website will have a cruising option, to help connect those who would like to crew with skippers that have room. We will work to set up text communication among participating skippers leading up to the
evenings departure. We ask that skippers leave their updated crew roster in the electric box at their slip, or in the clubroom as a prudent safety practice. There will be no formal course for the rally, but we will try to gather by 1930 hours at the clubroom to trade photos and fabrications.

By participating in this event, each individual releases the organizers and officials from any and all liability associated with such individual’s participation in this event to the fullest extent permitted by law.
