News and Info


Association races for 2008 will include three weekend "pairs" of Saturday/Sunday races.  Two are point to point and the last is the popular Good Old Boat Regatta.  We will not have Tartan 30 class starts, so are planning to enter the races in PHRF N, nonspinnaker.  We will score our own results within the Association for Bragging Rights and the club trophy at the end of the year.  The races are:

5/11/2008  Dues Change

The Executive Committee decided in December to use Association reserves to make a donation to Oregon State University to help establish a scholarship in memory of Jack Wong, a well-loved charter member of the association and a distinguished local sailor and sailmaker.  In view of the use of association reserves, the issue of association dues was discussed at the winter business luncheon and the members present unanimously agreed that the dues shall be $10 for the year 2008.   Please note this change is made with a view to improving Association communications and resources.  Visitors will note that changes are occurring to this website, updating it to new standards.  Please stay tuned as more content is added and pages are updated.  


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of a fine sailor, mentor, and founder of the CT30A, Jack Wong.  Click Here for his obituary, reprinted with permission from the Yakima Herald.
