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.
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.
Tiki J at anchor.
Tilagia at Anchor. Vince and Andy used their tenders to join the rest of us, who happily stayed on the dock.
Saturday afternoon, we went to Treasure Island Wines for a Wine tasting.
Jim Mirowski, the owner of Treasure Island Wines, gave a great presentation of the winery.
After the winery, we went back to Treasure Island Yacht Club.
Happy hour then occurred.
And more happy hour.
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.
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.
And, of course, Carly and Dave where serving em up 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.
