Every few years we like to reach out and have our members update their contact info so we know that we are getting our messages out to the right people! People move, emails change, boats change hands… it’s really helpful for us to keep our database up to date so you don’t miss out on any PSGBOA news!
This is also a good time for members to let us know if they have sold their boat, and are ready to be removed from our mailing list.
If you are a CURRENT member of PSGBOA, please fill out our online ‘survey’ here to update your contact information. This is also the correct form for you to remove yourself from our mailing list, should you no longer wish to be part of the Puget Sound Grand Banks Owners Association.
If you are not yet a member of PSGBOA, please go to the Join Us page and submit your info!
The Grand Banks Cruising Club of British Columbia – our friendly neighbors to the north! – are hosting their Fall 2017 Rendezvous at Telegraph Harbour, September 8th and 9th. If you are interested in joining them please take a look at the invitation flyer by clicking the following link Grand Banks Cruising Club Fall 2017 – contact details for registering are within the flyer.
We hope everyone is having a great summer cruising!

If you are interested in extending your Rendezvous I would like to invite you to continue further north with me and my husband, Mike. We would love to have you join us for a mini cruise leaving Roche Harbor Sunday the 14th. We’d head to Sidney, Vancouver Island for two nights and then continue onto Mill Bay two nights and then head over to Friday Harbor for two nights. We’ll have a few Docktail Parties and organize a dinner or potluck depending on the size of the group. Sign up during registration for further info! Once I know how many boats plan on coming, I will let each of those interested know if they need to make slip reservations, etc. There will be a captain’s meeting Saturday late afternoon before our final dinner in Roche Harbor.
