Club Events

Last weekend was a great weekend at the club with a Spaghetti Feed on Saturday and Burger night on Friday.

This coming weekend is an activity packed weekend for the Club.  We have about 12 club boats attending the Sausalito Cruise-out for the weekend.  Meanwhile, we are being visited by the Oakland Yacht Club and the Islander-36 Association.  Consequently, if you are not attending the cruise-out, there is a great deal of activity at the club.  Craig Thorson has put together meals on Friday and Saturday and a brunch on Sunday, which I would encourage everyone (not attending the cruise-out) to attend.

Mother’s Day Weekend

We started the weekend on Friday with a great taco buffet.  Everyone enjoyed all-you-can eat tacos, rice, and beans.  On Saturday, a chicken dinner was offered.  But, the highlight of the weekend was Mother’s Day Brunch.  Craig, with the help of several other people, organized a truly spectacular brunch spread that included several appetizers, ham, quiche, pancakes (with real maple syrup– non of that fake stuff), corned beef hash with poached eggs, and of course the usual array of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, breads, fruits, etc.  Meanwhile, Carly served up mimosas and bloody marys at the bar.

Sorry for no pictures this week.

South Bay Opening Day 2015

This weekend, CPYC was well involved in the South Bay Opening Day festivities.  Several boats (including the PandaAngler, Vita Bella, Tilligo, and Seabiscuit) traveled all of the way to the guest dock of Sequoia Yacht Club to take part in the festivities and the parade.  Several other members attended the various events around the South Bay.  Some selected photos of the festivities are below.

Captain Jack went full out with decorating Vita Bella for the event and won first prize in the themed youth division.  Mark Neuman won a prize in the themed boat division, so CPYC did great in the event.  For a full slide show of the entire event, please click here.

Treasure Island Cruise

Last weekend we cruised to Treasure Island.  Although some went on Friday, most of us left on Saturday.  Leaving on Saturday allowed us to enjoy burgers at the club on Friday night, which as usual where great.

Many of us had never been into Treasure Island before, but we all got there.

And more happy hour.IMG_2956

Our hosts where great and put together a fine feed for us and their members.  We had a great time hanging with our hosts.  We left the following morning, where several of us reconvened at our own club house for drinks upon return to the harbor.

Meanwhile, those who stayed in harbor at CPYC enjoyed a fine BBQ on Saturday night.  Everyone had a great time.

Races and Parties

Another great weekend at the club and on the boat.  Friday night started with burgers at the club.  As always, Lisa made great burgers.

Saturday, the Panda was volunteered as the committee boat for the Interclub races.  We had a great crew of people with Gary Edwards operating the boat, Lee Stevens and Yvette Yong leading the race, and Mark Canton and Brenna helping out.

Of course, the Panda not being a dry boat in moderate chop, Yvette and Lee got a little sprinkle on the way back.

Coyote Point entrants did a great job.

Of course, the race was followed by a great party hosted by Linda at the club.  We had plenty of club members in attendance and visitors from other clubs to stay on our docks and attend the festivities.  Gumbo was served up and the band made the club hop all night.

With all this activity, Sunday was a quite day of relaxing around the marina and then visiting the club in the afternoon for libations.
