        Make plans to join us for the June School’s Out Cruise. This cruise is the best way I can think of to celebrate the start of summer.

        This cruise goes down river to Kalama, Washington. We will stay at four different destinations. Friday night we are at Coon Island which is on Multnomah Channel. We are on the west side, that’s the side with the wooden docks.
        Saturday we head down the channel to Kalama Washington. There is a large guest dock. There is a charge for the guest dock, under 31′ $14.00, over 31′ $19.00. If you want you can head to McMenamins for happy hour or dinner.
        Saturday we head back up river to Martin Slough. There should be 8-12′ of water in the entrance to the pond. You will want to pay attention to the state of the tide. We will try to get the first boat in to radio a depth report to the cruising fleet.
        Tuesday we pass beautiful historic St. Helens and return up Multnomah Channel to Coon Island. This time we are on the east side, which has concrete docks.

        This cruise is a great way to get to know the Columbia River and Multnomah Channel. Check out the cruising column in the June Foghorn for more information. Don’t forget your dinghy.

        To help you get to know your RCYC friends there will be social hours each evening at 5:00 pm. We may have to get creative in Martin Slough. The Pot Luck dinner will be Tuesday evening at Coon Island at 6:00 pm.

        Don’t forget your fenders, dock lines, dinghy, and to wear your PFD’s. (Clothes, food, and beverages too)
        Please remember that dogs should be aboard your boat during the happy hours and potlucks. This should keep walkways clear and to prevent curious tongues from licking anyone else’s food.

        As always, you can join and leave the cruise as your schedule dictates.

        This cruise marks the start of summer. There is an event called Summer Sailstice that Alan Bergan informed us about. He has created an event on their site. You can sign up and participate if you want to.

        You can also email us with your questions about the School’s Out Cruise.

        See you out there,
        Bill and Nina
