Encinal Yacht Club Cruise-In
Join Us on Saturday Evening in The Clubhouse

Encinal YC is cruising into Westpoint Harbor this weekend. There will be 4 or 5 boats and about 10 members enjoying a weekend in the finest location in the South Bay. Our Port Captains will be there to provide our renowned “White Glove” welcome.

On Saturday evening EYC will be in The Clubhouse from 5 to6 before heading to dinner in downtown Redwood City. Please join them and offer a Westpoint Welcome.

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!
