2023 PaNNTOA Rendezvous – June 1-3, Port Sidney Marina, Sidney, British Columbia

An exciting weekend event awaits us at the beautiful Port Sidney Marina…just a short hop across the border from favorite San Juan destinations and a perfect provisioning location for the Gulf Islands.
Searching for a slip? Willing to share your slip? March 17, 2023 - As we cruise this year, many of us will leave our slips empty for months at a time. Slip Share allows members to share their vacant slips with other PaNNTOA members.
Seattle Yachts Service – Labor Discount March 17, 2023 -  
Just in time for spring, Seattle Yachts Service is offering PaNNTOA members a 10% discount off labor only. If you have questions, contact Joanie Martin, Seattle Yachts Service Writer, 360-245-1326.
Oh La La … Volunteer Opportunity (averages less than 1 hour/month) March 17, 2023 - Our all-volunteer organization (except the wizard behind the website) is looking for a new Membership Director. Mark Malnes, after serving for several years, is ready to transition the role to a shiny, new director.  

This is a role easily performed by anyone with access to the website. Our staff wizard has created several automated tools and processes to make the job straightforward.  

The membership director provides information to the PaNNTOA board related to membership statistics, reaches out to potential members referred by other members, sends membership lists to sponsors that offer discounts (sponsors must pinky swear they will not send spam based on our supplied list) quarterly, and, if so inclined, thinks about ways to increase membership.  

The membership director also works with the Communications director to reconcile bounced emails (did the member forget to renew? Sell their boat? Find a cooler group to hang out with? (Can’t be that!))  

If interested (even in the mildest manner), please email the Commodore. Thanks!
Waggoners Webinar Redux March 17, 2023 - For those who missed it, and for those who attended and thought, “Hey, knowing which marinas in Canadian waters have closed or changed hands, is a helpful bit of knowledge,” our eminently useful Vice-Commodore Jeff Redmond, recorded Mark Bunzel’s recent PaNNTOA Webinar. It is available for your viewing pleasure HERE  

Our thanks again to Mark, from the Waggoner Cruising Guide, for his presentation. Mark reminds us that the Waggoner Guide contains a link for updates made after the 2023 Guide went to press. Just saying…nobody wants to show up at a marina and find a one-eyed cutlass-wielding seagull and no moorage.

Commodore's Corner

March 18, 2020 - Greetings Fellow Tuggers! Your Board held a meeting on March 10th to discuss the upcoming Rendezvous as well as the Corona Virus outbreak and its potential impacts. We held very long and thoughtful discussions and had hoped to continue planning for the rendezvous. However, over the past week, due to the rapid and dramatic changes in the growth of the outbreak, it became obvious that we needed to cancel to protect your health, well-being, and safety. Most of you have probably already seen my statement on the web site addressing this. The plan for the 2021 rendezvous is to continue at the Sydney location, if available, using the plans already completed.  
We also discussed the upcoming officer lineup for the 2020-2021 slate of officers. The following have all agreed to continue in our respective positions: Myself (Commodore), Doug Ford (Vice Commodore/Secretary), Chris Sodeman (Membership Director), and Mike Young (Communications Director). These are pending approval by the membership at our General Meeting (time and place TBD). [Read more]
