Cruising the Delta
with Connie and Bob
Special Member Presentation
Connie and Bob Puccetti Tonight at 6:00 pm, April 30th – on Zoom
First-time boaters, Bob and Connie Puccetti were able to make their first long-distance boating trip. They were invited to join three other couples, and their boats, for a cruise out to the Delta. They traveled for two weeks with their new boater friends, then stayed on for another six weeks at Willow Berm Marina.
What an amazing experience they had, but most importantly, they are now looking forward to their next adventure. Join in on this zoom presentation to hear about their fun adventure, “the good, the bad, and the ugly”.
Steve Wullschleger and Kimberley Jacobsen Visiting the Matthew Turner
Here is a great picture of Steve, Kim, and Alex sailing the Matthew Turner out of Sausalito sporting their Club caps and Alex is wearing his PYSF gaiter. Alex will be doing summer camp with Call of the Sea on the Seaward schooner, sister ship to the Matthew Turner, as well sailing with PYSF.
The Matthew Turner is a tall ship designed after the ship Galilee, which was built in the late 1800s. She serves middle school-aged youth in marine environmental education and is an experiential learning platform for Bay Area youth. You will find her at the Army Corps of Engineers Dock in Sausalito (next to The Bay Model).

World Record Holder, Lia Ditton Friday, May 7th, 6:00 pm
On Zoom and In-Person in The Club
Row Lia Row
We are extremely lucky to have a very special presentation by an amazing athlete, sailor and world record holder, Lia Ditton
Lia is a professional ocean racer, an artist, author, and sought-after motivational speaker. She has sailed the equivalent of 8 times around the globe, is a household name in France for placing 2nd in the 2006 single-handed sailboat race Le Route du Rhum from Saint-Malo to Guadalupe and in 2015 Lia captained ‘PlanetSolar’ the largest solar-powered catamaran in the world. In 2016 Lia began training to succeed where 19 others have failed, to be the first person – not the first woman – to row 5,500 miles solo and unsupported land-to-land from Japan to San Francisco. Last year, Lia rowed half this distance and became the 2nd woman to row the Pacific from San Francisco to Hawaii, a crossing that took 87 days and broke two world records. Lia is passionate about creating educational resources for children and inspiring women, girls, and boys to dream beyond their limitations.
A number of The Club at Westpoint members have made significant contributions to a documentary about her (currently in production) about her amazing 87-day row from San Francisco to Hawaii.

Special Guest Presentation
Pacific Voyages with Jamis MacNiven Friday, May 14th, 6:00 pm
Jamis MacNiven is the founder and proprietor of Buck’s of Woodside, the restaurant known around the business world as Venture Capital Central for almost 30 years where Valley tech companies including Netscape, Hotmail, Paypal, Tesla, and countless others had their earliest investment meetings.
With the management of the restaurant now in the hands of his three sons and origin stories of tech giants now the stuff of legend, Jamis has set his sights on new voyages — chronicling the fascinating and wondrous history of distant locales and remarkable voyages of the vast Pacific Ocean.
“My motto is: ‘Travel to places you will never go.’ Trust me when I say I will take you to places you have not considered. This is a vacation from the cares of the world with not a whiff of the virus. But watch out for malaria, beriberi, blackwater fever, typhus, cannibals, murderous mosquitos, sharks, sea urchins, saltwater crocodiles, deadly jellyfish, political shenanigans, white bread with Spam and wildly overpriced Pina Coladas.”
“For me, it’s time for some blue water under the bow; so come with me and my parrot, Zimbabwe, and I’ll take you on a trip to strange and wondrous places.”
Please join us Friday, May 14th at 6:00 pm on Zoom (register here) or join us In-Person (socially distanced) in The Clubhouse.
