Bay Buoy Boogie 2019

June 8


Join us once again for Club Nautique’s Bay Buoy Boogie and BBYC Party!

What it is:

The Bay Buoy Boogie will take place on June 8th and be open to all Club Nautique members! A combined rounding of buoys and meet back at Ballena Bay Yacht Club for a fantastic after PARTY! This unique event will challenge old salts and new!

Participants get a great dinner, enjoy live music at BBYC, receive awards, and if you’ve chartered two days (recommended) and stayed the night in Ballena Bay will have a morning dock party with potluck breakfast on Sunday morning!

We’re using the progress app to track the whole thing, so we’ll be able to broadcast everyone’s progress live in the Clubhouses and replay all the excitement. That’s a whole lot of fun for only $30 per person!

Teams are encouraged to charter for the full weekend in order to take advantage of Friday afternoon boarding and Sunday potluck breakfast!. All sailboats are available for participation, so be sure to book your favorite early!

There are two ways to participate:

Pick your own boat and crew:

Skippers may reserve boats and find crew later. Skippers must pay the entrance fee for themselves at the time of booking. They may organize their teams and use a charter-share strategy if they wish. Please remember that participation fees must be collected in advance for all souls aboard.

Need Crew? / Want to find a skipper? — Get on the Crew Connect Forum and put a team together! 

We’ll pick for you:

Ready for random? You can call us up and ask to be in a Club picked team. Individual and couple participants must pay entrance fees at the time of booking. Charter share costs will depend on number of crew, and the size of boat. Club picked teams will split the full weekend charter cost, which we expect to be between $225 and $400 dollars per-person. Please be sure to tell our staff which base you’d prefer to board from.

The Full Course is approximately 20 miles, with the start line between Blossom Rock and Treasure Island (as shown below). Club Nautique’s Encore will function as Committee Boat. Participants will proceed north, take R “6” and R “8” to port and proceed through Racoon Strait. After taking G “1” to port, anything goes (no power sailing!) finding the fastest route to the BBYC monitored finish line. This will be a handicapped pursuit style outing..

Be sure to sign up for the progress app beforehand, and you can watch your favorite team’s progress HERE.


TERMS: Only regularly chartered Club boats may participate. White sails only. All souls on participating vessels must pay the entrance fee. No refunds will be issued after Saturday, May 25. Single handing is not permitted. Chartering skippers must have a minimum of US Sailing BC certification to reserve a boat. There will be a handicapped “Pursuit” start. So, first to finish wins. Power boats charterers are welcome to participate as observers (and attend the party!)
