The TYC Guest Docks will be reserved for participants in the Lighted Ships Parade from 0800 Friday, December 13, until 0800 Saturday, December 14. This is to allow participating boats to stage for the parade. Your cooperation is appreciated.
We would like to thank all skippers and crew for participating in this great event. Besides the brisk weather, the conditions could not have been any better with clear blue skies allowing a view of our local snow capped mountains and a steady wind of 6-20 knots through the entire course. All boats were finished by 3:30pm!Results: click for unofficial results. Once the page is up, if you click on the race number "1" to the right on the top row, the race details will be revealed underneath.
Check out the 150+ photos on the event page.

The Shipmates are asking for your help with our community outreach giving. The keynote speaker at the October Shipmates luncheon was Lois Kreitzer from the Washington Women’s Employment and Education organization. WWEE’s, mission is to help low-income individuals gain the skills, knowledge and courage to be self-sufficient. The organization has been operating for 31 years in Pierce and King County and has helped over 17,000 families by giving heads of households the tools to come off government assistance.
How can you help? WWEE welcomes donations of gently used clothing. These would be items suitable for job interviews and then on the job. Suggested items for women and men: suits, coats, slacks, shirts/blouses/tops, skirts, shoes and new undergarments. If you can make a donation, please bring your items to the Shipmate Evening Social on Nov. 13 or the Shipmate luncheon on Dec. 4. Please contact Bonnie Shaffer or Ivonna Anderson with any questions. Thank you for your generosity!
