We organize the annual Pocket Yacht Palooza—largest boat show celebrating small craft in North America—and the ensuing Palooza Crooza, a three-night cruise for skippers who take part in the Pocket Yacht Palooza.
In 2019, the Pocket Yachters debuted a new and larger event, the annual Salish 100, a week-long small-boat cruise the length of Puget Sound, 100 nautical miles from Olympia to Port Townsend. The event—biggest small-boat cruise in North America—attracted skippers from two dozen U.S. states and two foreign countries. The Salish 100 was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid 19 concerns, but it is scheduled for July 9-15 of this year, now under the banner of Port Townsend’s Northwest Maritime Center, with organizational support from the Pocket Yachters.
In a normal year there are many events and messabouts that you are welcome to join.
