Message from the 2020 Trio
On behalf of Seattle Yacht Club, the 2020 Trio welcomes you to join in on a time honored tradition – Opening Day of Boating Season! As always, we look forward to celebrating with our boating friends from the Pacific Northwest and beyond a week of friends, family, fun and of course, boating. Whether this is your first Opening Day, your tenth or even your fiftieth, Opening Day would not happen without you. Not only is Opening Day about boating, it’s about seeing old friends and making new ones. It’s all because of you that we are able to celebrate Opening Day. So, please join us on May 2, 2020.
We so appreciate your participation in all that Opening Day has to offer - whether it is a decorated boat, dressed power or sail, Wilson Seamanship Trophy, Club Officers Salute, attending the various celebrations at SYC, rafted on Dock Zero, tied to the Log Boom or standing on shore watching the crew races and parade.
Opening Day is a celebration and we have one additional reason to celebrate - we must note that May 1, 2020 marks a milestone in Seattle Yacht Club’s history, our Mainstation’s Centennial. It was on May 1, 1920 that SYC’s Mainstation clubhouse was dedicated. So, as you visit the Club, please take in some of the history that many of you have helped to create.
This year’s 2020 theme, Rock Around the Dock... a Celebration of Rock, Rhythm & Blues... and more!, was inspired by a universal love of music. Be it rock ‘n’ roll, blues, Motown, big band or jazz, we hope this inspires you with lots of creative ideas for those entering a Decorated Boat.
Thanks for being a part of this wonderful event - Opening Day – May 2, 2020!
