Passwords are below. If you have a problem getting hooked up at that time PM me or post on here and I'll try and monitor
this thread to get you up to speed.
This is more a potluck where we meet new folks and catch up with old friends, though we will probably have a discussion regarding next year's club officers. Then we'll have our interesting presentation of Chartering a big cat in Cuba
Meeting Tuesday, November 10 Once again we will not be meeting at Puget Sound
YC. The meeting will be online using the "Zoom" app, info is at the end below.
Plan on joining us from near and far!
6:30 pm PST - Virtual Potluck
7:00 - Club Meeting, then “A Trip to Cuba” presented by Rob and Teresa S.
In April 2019 six friends with a shared sailing problem traveled together on a two week vacation
to Cuba. They chartered a catamaran
for a 6 day trip out 70 miles off the coast to the Canarreos Archipelago, and also visited Old Havana, the old colonial city of Trinidad, New Havana and the beautiful Vinales Valley for a horseback trip to a tobacco co-operativo. This turned out to be one of the most interesting vacations ever, because in Cuba everything is "Complicated".
Rob and Teresa S. took their first sailing class with the University of Washington
Yacht Club in 1992. Following graduation and a brief life in suburban Redmond, they bought a 1984 Baba40 sailboat and moved aboard at Shilshole Marina. Eight years later, after lots of international chartering, local racing
, and many sailing classes
, they set sail for a 4.5 year 32,000 mile loop around the Pacific. Now back home 10 years later, they're closing in on retirement
and ready to head
again soon on an encore voyage, once again aboard their beloved Baba40. Where the winds will take them next time is yet to be discovered!
Hope to see you there!

More about Zoom…..
works on just about any device but it will work
best on a laptop
because the screen
size allows you to see more participants. You don't need a camera
but it's nice to have so other members can see you. You will need a microphone, but almost every laptop
has a microphone built-in. Headsets also work
From the download site install the ‘Zoom Client for Meetings’ for your computer. There are also ‘Zoom Mobile Apps’.
One Minute Video instructions: https://youtu.be/-s76QHshQnY
Zoom also has a "test meeting" running continuously so you can see if it's working: http://zoom.us/test
I’ve participated in Zoom meetings and have discovered that it's the ‘mute’ feature that makes it work - 40 people can’t talk at the same time and some are effected by feedback that’s not apparent to the person creating it. It is best to mute yourself (and the host can also mute participants). If you’ve been recognized or want to speak don’t forget to unmute yourself!
After ensuring your system and Zoom are working correctly, click to join at 6:30.
