It's a terrible stench like burning rot,Some say it’s peculiar, but I think it’s not.Barbara and Dean put their socks…

Our April whale watching cruise was a huge success. Roughly twenty club members and friends spent some quality time together at sea and we found the whales. Thanks to our skipper Mike Schmidt, along with some good scouting and coordination with some local whale watching outfits, we spotted a Humpback and two Fin whales. After, we moseyed over to the Russell’s for a beautiful sunset and drinks. Thank you Barb and Dean.-Cruise Director Brian King

Indeed the “Hour of Adventure” is upon us. April was packed with activities, from a sock burning ceremony to whale watching to offshore racing; what an amazing club with amazing people. The Newport to Ensenada sailboat race was remarkable. N2E is truly a “bucket list” adventure and you’ve got to go to know. If you didn’t make it this year be sure to join us next year as crew or part of the hospitality team. Before our next sailing adventure…
