The weather literally put a damper on things but it did not affect the enthusiasm of the volunteers or the many visitors to the show. We had very steady traffic to our booth and down on the VIP party barge.
We met such interesting people from all across the Bay Area including from as far afield as Sacramento to the north east and Morgan Hill to the south west. Everyone was really impressed with the new clubhouse and all said they could not wait to try out the new restaurant.
I met a couple and their young sons from San Leandro who had no idea Redwood City had a marina, let alone a port, and were truly impressed by the scale and excellence of everything at the harbor and at the show. As a sailing family, Westpoint is now going to be one of their top destinations.
Our amazing volunteers showed up in strength, many turning up even though it wan’t their day. From working the booth answering questions and telling The Club at Westpoint to hosting invited guests on the VIP Barge and helping them understand The Club culture and benefits of membership, the whole team was at it very best. Thank you so much for throwing yourself wholeheartedly into this!
Special thanks to the organizing team who have done a remarkable job of pulling all this together in a relatively short space of time. There dedication and persistence has really paid off.
And, let’s not forget, the wonderful Erick and Justin from Hurrica restaurant manning the bar on the VIP Barge – thank you gentlemen!
Day two is just beginning. The weather has improved and, as I sit here in The Club office writing today’s Buzz, the sun is shining on the new clubhouse, almost sparkling in its white paint, the boats in the harbor are reflecting the light in every direction such that there is glow reaching up and punching bright blue holes in the wispy white clouds.
Come and join us today, or this weekend.
Send me your boat show pics so I can publish them in The Buzz.
