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. 


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.

More details here

Thank you
Jocelyn Swanson
South Beach YC
