NWWB May 21st Meeting Tracy McCendry Director of Recreational Boating for Port of Seattle Overseeing Shishole Bay, Harbor Island and Bell Harbor Marinas

Tracy is an Olympia gal who, after earning an English/Creative Writing degree from UW, immediately headed out for adventures on the water.

“The day after college graduation, I was on a plane to Anchorage to work on a boat in Prince William Sound doing tours from Whittier to Valdez.”

The following year she worked as a deckhand on a small cruise ship for Alaska Sightseeing and earned enough sea time to earn a 100 Ton Master of Inland Waters, 15o Mate of Near Coastal Waters and Able-bodied Seaman Rating. Starting as second mate on a 200′ cruise ship she eventually made Captain. She increased the tonnage of her license to receive 500 Ton Masters of Inland Water, 1600 Ton Mate of Inland Waters. She ultimately worked for Victoria Clipper as Chief Mate.

Her Marina career started at Foss Harbor Marina in Tacoma where she was Harbor Master and later General Manager. She’s been with the Port of Seattle 7 years, ultimately taking the position as Director for Recreational Boating.

She takes the time to walk marinas, isn’t surprised by anything that happens even dealing with the FBI and Secret Service. Tracy has a goal of making more time to talk to boaters. Hear that…She wants to hear from us so come out and meet her, bring questions and enjoy a presentation by a gal clearly very knowledgeable about Seattle Marinas and regional issues/policies surrounding recreational boating…subjects close to our hearts.
