Destination trips

Any club member can organize a trip.  If you are interested in organizing a trip, please contact a Board member.  

Please consider buying trip cancellation insurance for ALL club trips.  Many of our trips are in privately owned resort homes, small family run hotels or hotels that offer no refunds.  Refunds are seldom available once payment has been made. 

Refund policy: Refunds for trips will be made only if the participant was able to be replaced by another.  It is the participant's responsibility to find a replacement.  If a refund can be issued, it will be done after completion of the trip.  All refunds are decided by the Board.

    This potluck will be held at the Seattle Yacht Club Elliott Bay Outstation (at the base of Magnolia, near Maggie Bluffs & Palisade restaurants – address below).
