Ever wondered how all those big ships that pass Whidbey on Admiralty Inlet make their moves?
Well, here is your chance to find out.

Stuart Mork is a recently retired Puget Sound Harbor Pilot, a Bush Point resident, and a current board member of the NW Maritime Center.
He will talk on what it is like to be a pilot and how the Puget Sound Pilots operate. He will also cover what a typical day on the job is like for a pilot, and what the dangers are for yachts interacting with ships.
Please bring your questions and/or experiences you may have had on Puget Sound that might need explanation.

Guests are welcome!
