All boats are REQUIRED (and read this saying that the word ‘REQUIRED” is capitalized) to follow these rules.

Wineseekers Cruise 2017
October 27 – October 29
Yakima Valley, WA
Come one – come all. This year’s Wineseekers cruise is going to be a big step from last year’s event in Woodinville. “How” – you might ask? Well, here is the skinny
arranged through the Best Western in Prosser. Contact Eric direct by e-mail for the link to the special savings for CYCT members (about 10% each night). Rooms are blocked until October 5th, so apply early. If we have enough interest, I can increase the rooms..... But act FAST
So, last year we have (3) fine winery visits... and that was good for a starter, but this time, we are going big or going home.
“Really?” you might ask – well, heck yes is the answer. How can I be certain?
a total of (7) establishments over two days, with the visits on Sunday being on the way home.......
Is anyone worried about the drive, well, let me try to put your mind at ease. It is about a 3.5 Hour drive from the intersection of Highway 18 and I-90 to Prosser. The drive from there to the exit ramp in Prosser is all on Inter-state Highways. It could snow in the pass, but even then, it should be good. Our trip back, if leaving the last tasting at 3:30 in Yakima should be about 3 hours to home. Or, in boating terms, about the same delivery from Seattle to Tacoma on a Sunday. But I would suggest carpooling – saves on gas, saves on the environment, and makes the convoy home a bit shorter.....
Food and other fun to be determined – but have you ever spent a grand evening in Prosser? Could be a hoot. Hotel has a pool and continental breakfast as part of the deal, and is located with easy access to other food and entertainment destinations...
