Rainier Yacht Club is a small boating community right off of the marina in the Rainier Valley area. It was the first club in the northwest to change its by-laws and rightfully recognize women as full participating members of the club with the power to vote in 1975. Now there are hundreds of women in yacht clubs around the northwest, and every other year they join together in celebration over food and drinks. This year, Rainier Yacht Club hosted the event and invited Huraiti Mana. 90 women gathered together with Hawaiian food, music, and dance. One guest was celebrating her 95th birthday. It was a fun event, and we hope to see these women boating about in the sound, soon!
