The past few years, SubCom Inland Passage has made an annual trek south to
Tualatin Oregon and sailed their submarines during the Crawfish Festival in August.
With the passing of Erv Crosby, I would hate to see this annual regatta cease to exist.
I have not heard if anyone has taken up Erv's position, but I would like to extend an
invitation to any submarine modelers to come out and display or play. In the past the
North end of the pond has been sectioned off for submarines, the center for open sailing, and
the South end for maneuvering event. So the submarines can have their own waters to sail freely.
The Century Hotel is right on the South end of the pond, so theoretically, you can sail from your room.
August 14th, two of us will be hosting a maneuvering event, for targets, an afternoon event
for Tug boats, and an evening run with lighted gates for anyone that stays or returns Saturday evening.
We are still expecting model boat clubs, or members from Seattle, Burnaby BC, Spokane, Idahoe,
San Francisco, and possibly Arizona to attend this August 14th regatta. It would be great to see the
submariners continue to be a part of this event.
Speak up and let us know you are interested in attending
