As of today, 6/15/2015, Caltrans has cleared and swept the main channel span of both bridges between piers “G” & “H”. This is the main (large) channel span closest to the east side of YBI.
The USCG Captain of the Port has approved all vessels to pass through the Safety Zone in the main channel span of the SSOBB and that Safety Zone is being terminated.
VTS San Francisco is advising waterway traffic to transit the main channel span “G-H”.
The green center span lights previously in the “I-J” span have been discontinued.
The green center span lights in the main channel span “G-H” have been activated.
All waterway traffic is advised to avoid navigating under the old bridge from piers “H” to the Oakland shorel ine due to overhead demolition of the bridge.
A COTP Safety Zone will be established shortly prohibiting vessel operation under the demolition area.
There will be a Broadcast Notice to Mariners and the information will be included in the weekly Local Notice to Mariners as the project progresses.
Please share as necessary.

Had a great cruise to Sausalito over the memorial day weekend.
Although the Panda was the lone power boat present (we really must fix that), we made the best of it.
Of course, it was also somebody’s birthday that weekend, so on Saturday we had a great dock party to celebrate.
And party we did (at least all of my wine disappeared somewhere).
Lots of fun for all. On Sunday, we headed downtown for drinks and dinner at the Sausalito Yacht Club. Returned to our club on Monday.
While we were gone, our own club was hosting Oakland Yacht club. Twelve boats cruised in (one came from San Diego). Craig Thorson was holding down the club and served 25 dinners Friday night, a BBQ for 38 people on Saturday, and 21 breakfasts on Sunday morning. Thanks Craig!
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.
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.
The club had its regular burger night on Friday night. On Saturday, we offered BBQ in a Bag. Those who attended had a great steak or grilled chicken dinner with all of the fixings. Several members enjoyed drinks at the club on Sunday.
If you have not done so already, please sign up to attend the festivities at South Bay Opening Day. A great time will be had by all with dinners at San Leandro and Peninsula Yacht clubs, a boat parade and festivities at Sequoia Yacht Club, and a brunch at South Bay Yacht Club. CPYC is well involved with these activities, so sign up today.
Please sign up on our cruise page or directly at http://www.southbayopeninday.org
We had the great pleasure of introducing seven new members to the club at our meeting on April 21.
After those introductions, we had a great discussion between Andy and Jerry on the building and launching of Little Bear.
As a result of the great lecture, we had a full house for the evening, including visitors from Sequoia and from Peninsula Yacht Clubs.
