In today’s Buzz:

  • Vote on allowing the board to move the Annual Members’ Meeting to October
  • Enjoy in the excitement tonight at the PYSF Family Fun night
  • Welcome Sausalito Yacht Club to the harbor

Notice of Annual Members Meeting.
The Annual Members Meeting should be the closest Friday to September 15th in the bylaws. The board would like our first official event in the new clubhouse to be the Annual Members Meeting and asks the members if they would permit the date to be October 27th. This gives us time to settle in and work out the processes and procedures.
If you could vote on this by August 7th, we will announce the results on August 8th. You should have an email with your voter number. Please check your spam folder if you do not see it.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Kevin Parker, Secretary, The Club at Westpoint.

It’s a great way to connect with all of the coaches, sailors and PY families!!  Please let us know you are coming. LINK HERE

Saturday, August 12th Family Fun Regatta is an awesome event that includes sailing in FJs and a Family Night style party at Westpoint. The event will be Saturday, August 12 from 10am-4pm. Sailors race with a family member (parent, sibling, grandparent, aunt…).  Molly pairs you with another PY family/boat to complete a “team” racing for the Lori Wilkinson Trophy. We then have a fun filled party at Westpoint (with food truck, band, games) to celebrate the end of the summer!  It’s a day you don’t want to miss!

Sausalito Yacht Club
Cruise-In Friday to Sunday

The founders of Sausalito YC conceived and established the new club on New Year’s Eve of 1942. The time was right. World War II had called many of the older, local boat owners to Europe or the Pacific. Before heading off to war, they trusted their boats to the care of the club’s young founders, the oldest just three months short of his seventeenth birthday.

The club had several names in the first few days (including the tongue-in-cheek Ritz Sailing and Racquet Club) until Sausalito Yacht Club became the obvious choice. A mood of teenage rebellion was reflected in a provision of the first bylaws: no one could join the club who was older than the oldest founding member. Later, the maximum age limit was raised, although it was not abandoned until 1953.

Please welcome them to the harbor.

Red Bra Regatta
Saturday, September 23th, South Beach Yacht Club

This is the 11th annual Red Bra Regatta. This is a regatta skippered and crewed by women only in the south portion of San Francisco Bay. This is a fun event that allows women to race against each other and enjoy a beautiful venue. No host bar and food for a nominal fee will be held after the race at South Beach Yacht Club.

Thank you

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.

  • 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. 

Cheers, and looking forward to hearing from you.
