Cruise-Out Calendar Update
from Shannon Amerman

Hello Cruisers, 

As we have had a couple of adjustments to the schedule, I just wanted to remind you of what we have planned for the next couple of months. Please mark your calendar with this info and I hope to see you!

  • July 4th: Casual BBQ on the (soon to be) Club guest dock (N dock). Details are still being finalized, but the idea is that club members and their guests can dinghy over to the guest dock—we BBQ and then dinghy out to the turning basin at sunset (hopefully in a big group) to watch fireworks! More to follow once I finalize the plan with the Harbor. And, for anyone that doesn’t want to dinghy out, you can see the fireworks (at least the high ones) from N dock, so stay around and enjoy the show.
  • Aug 25 to Sept 1: The Delta. One of my top 3 places to visit!
  • Sept 1 to 4: Sausalito (Schoonmaker)… Those that are in the Delta can stop here on the way home as it’s an easy stopover along the way, or if not in the Delta, please do come and join us for the Labor Day weekend.
  • Oct 20 to 22: Half Moon Bay

I’d love to get an informal “we’re planning to go” or “wish we could but can’t make it” email from you… so please, reply to me (no need to reply all) and just give me a sense if you are planning to join any of the above cruise outs. I will create sign-ups but would love to get a sense of the number of people planning to join. Mostly because planning a cruise out for 3 boats vs 15 boats is very different. 

Hope to see you out there! Last weekend in Ayala Cove at Angel Island was FANTASTIC. The winds up and back were perfect, lots of fun at the island, and we took dinghies over to Corinthian YC to visit with the crew of Hurrica and Ocean Queen as they participated in the Wood Boat Show. You missed a fun weekend with lots of boats (and classic cars)! 

Cheers, and looking forward to hearing from you. 


Westpoint Regatta 2023 will be another spectacular race and party right here at Westpoint Harbor.
Sailors! Get your entry in now! Here
Volunteers! Sign up now! We need people to help the Port Captains, check crews in, sell meal and beverage tickets, and help with setup and tear down. Here
