Memorial Day 2013

Memorial Day weekend was a wet and windy four days at Swantown Marina in Olympia. Seven boats made the trip to the Capital City - Only Time, Sea Kitty Too, September, Afterburner, Rumours, Glass Toy and C & C - a few others came by car. Members enjoyed a joint pancake breakfast with Quartermaster Yacht Club, Vegetable Car Races, dinner overlooking the water at the Hearthfire Grill and a Memorial Day wreath ceremony. Here are a few pictures from the weekend.
