August Pub Quiz

Tonight we are back on Zoom for the Pub Quiz. Join us at 6:00 for the usual fun and nonsense.

For August’s PubQuiz here is another teaser: in the form of a three-word mash-up. Example: what is the mash-up sentence that comes from 007 and A Sydney Bathing Spot? Answer: James Bondi Beach. Here are some for you:

1) Millennium Falcon’s Captain and Last Test Before Getting Your Wings
2) Oliver Twist’s Young Criminal Mentor and Home Of The Giants So Cal Rivals
3) Ageless Neverland Boy and Defunct Airline

Answers in the Chat in SlipStream.

Building Update
Pipes going in
Last step before …

We are now welding the twelve-inch water mains which go under the new street and parking lots for the Restaurant and Club, and it should be done by the end of next week. The water connection is already made and we should FINALLY begin paving the street (Northpoint Court) after that.

Never fast enough, but its progress, Mark

Summer Concert
Jinx and the Whisk Food Truck
Saturday, August 21st on the Helipad

Jinx is a guitar virtuoso who seamlessly moves from rockabilly to jazz to twang and back again, sometimes in the same song. Those with a liner note obsession will remember Jinx’s playing on En Vogue’s “Free Your Mind.”  

Four or five nights a week, the great guitar player with the immaculate pompadour can be found at various Bay Area venues, working the stage, doing his thing. The Colorado native came up serving as a sideman to rock ’n’ roll royalty, playing with the likes of Chuck Berry and Solomon Burke.”

San Francisco Chronicle

We will also have the welcome return of the Whisk Food Truck.

Register today here or on Slipstream.

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!
