Hi all,

Last year a few folks showed up for a race out of Bremerton, and I was wondering if that was something we'd be interested in doing again.

Looking at the SARC, I know some cruiser-racer friendly race series include Seattle Yacht Club's Tri Island, which is a three-race series starting in mid April and ending in May. I believe all three start outside of Shilshole, as many races do down here.
