Launch ramp and parking:
A Washington State Parks Discover Pass ($30/year) is required OR you can buy a one day pass on-site for $10. For more information check out the Mystery Bay page on the Washington State Parks website.

"Schedule" and Activities:
Suggested launch time is early morning. We will stop for the potluck and Annual Meeting in the afternoon. Specific timing and activities will depend upon the weather and the boats and people in attendance. Possibilities include a trip south to Port Townsend Bay, and perhaps a grand sail-by so we can get a good group photo of TSCA boats in motion. Don't let the annual meeting scare you away - it will be kept very short and you don't need to be a member of TSCA to be present.

Tides for the day (Pacific Daylight Time):
    11:55  6.57 feet High Tide
    16:51  6.09 feet Low Tide
    21:18  PDT 6.79 feet High Tide

Food and Shelter:
We will set up pop-tops, etc. as we did at the Oyster Messabout, starting around 11, with lunch and our very brief meeting about 12:30. There are picnic tables, a fire pit, a place for a portable barbecue and running water in the park, as well as the boat ramp (no float) the park dock, and mooring buoys.

Local Knowledge:
Although the waters are protected, the currents in Admiralty Inlet are serious, especially for unpowered boats. There are significant rips NW of Point Wilson, especially at times of stronger current. Check here for more info.

Host: Claire Acord
