Salty Dawg Saloon: As referenced in the Kenai Kingdom feature on page 62, the interior of the Salty Dawg Saloon of Homer, Alaska, is covered in dollar bills. In the old days, this was how mariners bought their buddies drinks while out at sea.

NWY on the Scene: Northwest Yachting goes to some pretty extreme lengths to make a great magazine every month. Managing editor Norris Comer is here, camera soaked, after snapping pictures of Sea Star in 20+ knot-winds on a small skiff in front of Northwestern Glacier.

Good Times at WIRW: Whidbey Island Race Week started in 1983 and has been a local sailing mainstay for decades. The move to Point Roberts next year, and access to deeper waters and better facilities, has the potential to grow the event even more. Pictured here (left to right): Christine Russell (kids camp staffer), Schelleen Rathkopf (Race Week producer), and Cori Whitaker (sponsor, Windermere Real Estate).

WIRW Exits, PRRW Begins: The final Whidbey Island Race Week hosted in Oak Harbor, Washington, took place July 23 to 27. The beloved event is moving to Point Roberts, Washington, next year. Pictured here at the pre-race shingdig (left to right) is Bob and Karen Nelson, Lorraine Carter, Charly Rathkopf (principle race officer), Catlin Gibson (race committee administrator), and Joyce Butchart.

NWY on the Scene: This shot encapsulates “the job” of marine journalism well. Here, an icy wave of glacier water is milliseconds away from drenching managing editor Norris Comer while shooting Sea Star in Alaska. It’s all for you, readers!

6.

Riviera R&R Rendezvous: The annual Riviera Rendezvous hosted by Emerald Pacific Yachts in Roche Harbor was another success for the books with a reported a crowd of around 170.

7.

A Galaxy Not So Far Away: The costume theme at the Riviera Rendezvous was classic movies. All ages look like they went all-out. Our advice on costume contests? Let the Wookie win.

8.

Off to see the Wizard? These Riviera Rendezvous revelers are well on their own Yellow Brick Road to see the Wizard of Oz.

9.

Jeanneau Rendezvous: The Jeanneau Rendezvous organized by local yacht brokerage Marine Servicenter was a full house. Sponsored by Northwest Yachting, the event was hosted in Anacortes June 21 to 23. Want to talk sponsorships? Contact us!

10.

Kenmore Connection: Lisa Samuelson hit it off with her Northwest Yachting reading neighbor pictured here, Dusty Rowland, on a recent Kenmore Air flight to Roche Harbor. He’s a longtime fan of the magazine. Happy reading and boating, Dusty!
