The quintessential conditions for the Sloop Tavern Yacht Clubs “Dark & Stormy Cruise”.  Shake out your foulies, put on mid calf rubber boots, neoprene gloves & a southwester hat.  Pack your ginger beer and rum for arrival in Kingston. We have “full conditions” suitable for a cruise to Kingston today with a return on Sunday.  Pay your dues to the weather gods to what was first described by that old guy Copernicus.

  1. Gotta love the PNW version of crazies. Hey it beats snowshoeing in the Indian Peaks to observe/salute/welcome the Winter Solstice regardless of weather conditions! I love this new, to me, version of crazy. 😜
