Holiday Events in Seattle
Have a great Thanksgiving!
Here is a summary of last week’s security meeting…
The purpose of the meeting was to update the marina tenants and upland residents on the recent security concerns affecting our area. There were about 60 attendees, along with Port of Seattle Police, the POS Head of Security, POS Maritime Director, and Shilshole staff. The contract security firm that patrols in the evening was also there.
Commander Bill McAteer, POS Police: Two police officers cover the seaport properties and work in close partnership with the Seattle Police Dept. and the Burlington Northern Police. As always, call 911 for any emergencies and state you are at Shilshole Marina. Call 206-787-5401 for any non-emergency response (suspicious persons, non-threatening criminal activity). The Port of Seattle Police will respond much quicker than Seattle PD, will take your statement and follow-up with you. Continue Reading »
80 days around the world alone, no stops, and this year they have foiling boats! You can download the free ap to follow.
The Vendée Globe is the hardest and most famous sailing race in the world. Nicknamed the Everest of the Seas, it involves sailing around the world alone, without stopping and without assistance, setting sail from and finishing in Les Sables d’Olonne, after rounding the three legendary capes: The Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, Cape Leeuwin in Southern Australia and the infamous Cape Horn at the tip of South America. They therefore have to sail twice in the North and South Atlantic – on the way down and on the way back – and sail around Antarctica by crossing the Indian Ocean and the huge Pacific. Like other major international sporting events (the Olympics, World Cup, etc) it has been organised every four years since 1989.
