Hurrica and Ocean Queen in the Rolex
Congratulations to the crews from Hurrica and Ocean Queen.

Hurrica and the Queen were the belle of the ball at this year’s big boat series. They got a lot of attention on and off the water and were wonderful flagship ambassadors for The Club.

Lots of amazing pictures from the Rolex here and few choice ones below. Look out for the one with the PYSF crew members having a great time.

Movie Night: The Birds (60th Anniversary)

2023 marks 60 years since the iconic Hitchcock masterpiece “The Birds” was released. Starring Rod Taylor, Jessica Tandy, Suzanne Pleshette, and the incredible Tippi Hedren is both a thrilling tale and wonderful look at Bodega Bay way back in 1963.
