PacRim 2014 Calendar of Events
Skagit Wildlife Reserve
The Skagit estuary contains critical habitats for waterfowl, shorebirds, fish and other aquatic species. This is truly one of the most unique natural habitats in the Pacific Northwest. We will leave the Bellingham Yacht Club and travel via coach to the Headquarters of the Skagit estuary where we will get a private presentation by John Garret, Ranger (retired). After our tour, we will sample a few of the favorite spots in the beautiful Skagit Valley before we return to the Bellingham Yacht Club to meet the racers and find out the results of the day.
First warning signal will be at 11:00 a.m.
Just as we begin each morning with both Racers and Ambassadors socializing, we plan to wrap up each day in the same way. After the Racing, after the cultural events, this is will the time to catch up, enjoy a pint or two, and talk about the days activities. Most of the visitors will have their host families picking them up beginning at 1730, but just as in the morning, they have been invited in to socialize.
This will be an initial meeting to provide information to interested participants, form the committee and create assignments for tasks.
If you have any interest in attending PacRim 2016 in Nakhodka, Russia as a sailor or and ambassador, or would like to participate as a member of the planning committee you should plan to attend this meeting.
