Mexico Cruising – Burgee Exchange

That’s Bruce and I – on the swim platform of DESERT VENTURE. We are proud, but absent, members of the Bellingham Yacht Club.

This is Ken and Sylvia on S/V ANN LUCIA. Look back at this blog, when we met on the transient dock, in Newport, OR, last fall.

We had a wonderful reunion in Mazatlan.  Read about our time in the city – click here.

Ken and Sylvia expressed a wish to exchange yacht club burgees, and introduce our yacht clubs to each other. Needless to say it took awhile to get us all back together with burgees in hand.

But, we did manage it – in Mazatlan – in April!

Bruce displays our Bellingham Yacht Club (BYC) burgee. Ken displays their Hayama Yacht Club (HYC – oldest yacht club in Japan) burgee.

And now, drum roll, please….da dum…

Ken and Sylvia are now in Panama. You can read about their trip through the canal via their friend’s blog- SV JEORGIA

We can’t wait until we can rendezvous again.   Sail safe, friends!

  1. Hey, that’s a really good photo of you two holding your burgee. Thanks for sharing the link to Ken and Sylvia’s trip through the Panama Canal, also. Very educational.

  2. Hi Angie and Bruce

    Love hearing of your adventures and glad you made it back from the south safely. Sharon sends her love and wants you to call her. She lost her phone book with all the info so give her a shout. Keep well.


  3. It is a most wonderful occasion, we could meet such a marvelous couple Angie and Bruce. We are proud to know you both.
    Thank you, Angie and Bruce, we could spend many happy time, even it was bad weather or not.
    It is a great honor to exchange our burgee of Hayama Yacht Club with your Bellingham Yacht Club.
    Thank you!
    Ken and Sylvia

  4. GREAT pictures of an interesting ceremony, Angie! Do you fly both burgees or do you just display them inside the beautiful Desert Venture?
    Take care and stay safe!
