Covid-19: Important Notice

Member safety is The Club’s primary concern. Due to the increase in Covid-19 cases in both unvaccinated and vaccinated people in San Mateo County, we have changed the policy regarding masking. The Club follows the State and Federal Guidelines and has returned to requiring members to be Masked when in The Clubhouse. Members who are Vaccinated are not required to wear a mask at outside events though it is strongly recommended that they do. Members who are not vaccinated must wear a mask at outside events.

Tonight: Friday Fun Series and then
Meet The Junior Sailors and their Families
Larry’s delicious Sundowner Dogs
will be available

Ahoy Skippers,

It is just about 10 hours before the fourth of six (6) Friday Fun Sailing!!!! The Friday Fun Sails are the third Friday of the month and none of them conflict with any scheduled Sequoia YC events. They are guaranteed to be FUN.

We have 9 boats registered. if you would like to register your boat: go to JIBESET then The Club at Westpoint then Next Race Dates click July 23 then register.

The course shall be emailed this afternoon along with any special instructions/invitations! 

The Club and PYSF are all in with using the Westpoint fuel dock and the PYSF facility on the East side of the Marina for post-Friday Fun Sail docking and SUNDOWN DOGS.

The Sundown Dogs shall be available for $5 with the proceeds going to PYSF. There are (all you can eat) Ball Park Hot Dogs, (ketchup, mustard, relish) and Potato Chips. The SUNDOWN DOG is a Bring your own side and (anything you want to drink) Beverage, the SUNDOWN DOGS EVENT is in conjunction with the PYSF Family Night that begins at 5:00ish and we shall join them as we finish the Fun Sail.

Around 7:00: Then, Our Junior Sailors are doing “family night”, where members and parents come and socialize, there’s a BBQ, and small boats are usually available for people to try out. Junior sailors will be joining the race, and afterward, everyone meets at the PYSF Tent for Larry’s delicious Sundowner Dogs. Think of this as a social evening, with an opportunity to meet the PY team, PY parents, Junior Sailors. And their chance to meet us. Our members’ strong showing would let our junior sailors know how important they are to us. You don’t have to race, you can just show up after the race for the social party.

August 28th and 29th
C420 Pacific Coast Championships
Spectator Boats Needed

We need spectator boats and both on-water and on-land volunteers on Aug 28 and 29th, to support the junior C420 Pacific Coast Championships. There will be junior sailors from all over the west coast visiting PY and Westpoint Harbor to participate in the championships. Projections suggest about 30 sailboats racing, and with west-coast specific attendance, parents of the junior racers will likely be in town too and would love an opportunity to ride on a spectator boat to view the race. 

Please let me know if you’re interested in volunteering, either on-land or on-water (spectator boat or committee boat). Shannon (email)

Sausalito Cruise-Out – Labor Day Weekend
Registration Now Open

Hello TCAW Cruisers,

I’m excited to announce that this week I was able to secure Schoonmaker Point Marina in Sausalito for our Labor Day Cruise Out. 

This cruise out will be the first actual cruise out to another marina since before COVID—I can’t believe it’s been over a year!

The Labor Day cruise out is officially Friday, Sept 3rd, and goes to Monday, Sept 6th (Schoonmaker requires a three-night minimum stay that weekend). 

Grunion will be spending much of the preceding week at Schoonmaker, and we encourage others to join us! Otherwise, we suggest boats plan to arrive by Friday afternoon. Slack at the San Mateo Bridge is around noon, so ride the ebb up the bay and arrive before sunset! 

We will start with Welcome Docktails on Friday afternoon as everyone arrives. A preview of the planned weekend activities include:

  • Saturday breakfast — Tod and I will prepare a large Shakshuka on the beach (see pic)
  • Saturday evening — a beach potluck BBQ supplemented with award-winning Lockford Meats grilled sausages, games, and prizes
  • Sunday morning —  we’ve reserved a block of appointments at Cavallo Point Spa (if interested, please look at the available treatments as you will be asked to make a selection during the sign-up process)
  • Sunday night — we’ll celebrate with a dinner out as a group (location TBD)

No boat? No problem! Yes, you are more than welcome to join us for any part of the long weekend! 
All members are welcome to “blacktop” to Schoonmaker to join the group either for a day or for the weekend—there are several hotels nearby.

Important Note: The sign-up sheet for this cruise out is link for the sign-up.

Space is limited as are the spa appointments so reservations for the cruise out will be assigned first-come, first-served. 

We’re looking forward to you joining us on Labor Day Weekend in Sausalito!
