Gig Harbor Yacht Club

Gig Harbor YC Power Fleet

In addition to our cruising activities, the Gig Harbor Yacht Club is home to an active group of boat owners who participate in Predicted Navigation Contests throughout Puget Sound and British Columbia. Our skippers routinely bring home trophies in these events. Predicted Navigation Contests, or "Predicted Log Races" involve the calculation of the time required to run a given course and distance. The skipper then navigates their boat using only a compass and the boat's RPM gauge. The winner is the skipper who can predict the time required to run this course with the lowest percentage of error.

Take your Time

If you are planning to race this season and would like help in timing your boat please call Jim Anderson at 253-857-3306. To time your boat allow the time needed to get from your slip to Ruston Way plus 1.5 – 2 hours. You will need a stop watch.

Gig Harbor Yacht Club members are eager to assist you in getting involved in this program, which serves as an excellent way to improve your navigation skills.

For more information, please call Jim Anderson at 253-857-3306 or send him an email.
