Welcome to the GB Board.
I also recommend going to the Rendezvous in May. After you leave Anacortes for the Rendezvous you will end up in a convoy of GB's from Seattle, Everett, Oak Harbor, Laconner and all the marinas in Anacortes.
It is a great place to get caught up in all things GB as well as good food, great people, lots of dogs and, of course, grog.
You will find there are considerable GB's in Anacortes and most of them will be there. It is always nice to get to know your marina neighbors.
