Each morning we are inviting both the Racers and the Ambassadors for morning coffee beginning at 0800 when the club opens.  This will be a chance to socialize with everyone before the days activities begin, and your host families are also being invited for this “Coffee Hour”

Ambassadors/Racers Afternoon Wrap-up @ Bellingham Yacht Club
Sep 10 @ 11:30 pm – Sep 11 @ 1:00 am

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.
