Summer Concert – Scott Kirby – Tomorrow
Join us in The Clubhouse for the amazing Scott Kirby
Saturday, June 10th at 6:00 pm

Latest Clubhouse Photos
Great progress on the clubhouse. See the new photos below.

Singer, songwriter, guitarist, storyteller, traveler, road warrior, and sailor are all words that aptly describe Scott Kirby. Finishing songs while driving through the Italian countryside, performing 100 plus live shows throughout the US and Canada, touring Ireland with 50 fans, and recording his tenth album in Nashville, all keep the barnacles off this modern-day troubadour.

This is Scott’s fourth trip to The Club. He was one of the first acts to perform for us and has become an annual favorite.

Food at 6:00 $25pp
Concert at 7:00

Cruise-Out to Ayala Cove
The is the perfect spot for a tranquil weekend cruise
Friday, June 16th to Sunday 18th, 2023

Ayala Cove Cruise-Out
You might have noticed the June cruise out was listed as TBD. Let’s do Ayala Cove the weekend of June 16th. 

This cruise out will be informal and won’t have a sign up sheet. Just let me know if you’re interested and I’ll include you in the planning communication. Grunion will likely head up on Thursday June 15 and make it a long weekend.

In August of 1775, Lt. Juan Manuel de Ayala, a Spanish Naval officer, sailed the ship the San Carlos into San Francisco Bay and anchored into what is now know as Ayala Cove. The first Europeans to sail into the San Francisco Bay, Ayala and his crew spent forty days making a chart of the area. Following a practice then common among Catholic explorers naming sites for the religious feast days nearest to the time of discovery, Father Vicente, the chaplain of the San Carlos, christened the little island Isla de Los Angeles.

In 1954 a number of citizen’s groups managed to persuade the California State Park Commission to obtain 36.82 acres surrounding Hospital Cove for a State Park. The federal government had already declared the island surplus property, and in 1958 even more acreage was acquired by the State. In December 1963, the entire island was turned over to the State. On September 6th, 1969 Hospital Cove was renamed “Ayala Cove” in honor of the Spanish lieutenant who charted it.
