Marin YC Cruise Out 2015

Labor Day Cruise to Marin Yacht Club

Marin Yacht Club rolled out the Red Carpet, once again, for us for our Labor Day Weekend Cruise. This year 20 boats made their way to San Rafael for an action packed weekend. The Staff at MYC could not have been more cooperative and the weather sure was Super. We used every available berth that Marin had to offer us!

Marin is always a fun Cruise. We have boats returning from time on Delta Cruises, as well as those up just for the weekend. This year many of our group spent hours at the pool, playing tennis, or participating in the Sunday Bocce Ball Tournament. There was something for everyone.

Bocce Ball drew 11 teams that slugged it out on Sunday Afternoon with KATHLEEN I
beating Stoli’n Time for the First Place Trophy.

Marin Yacht Club offered very fine meals on Friday and Sunday Nights as usual. The Highlight of the Weekend was the Fantastic Treat that CPYC Member Torin Knorr offered Saturday Night. Applewood smoked rotisserie chicken, tri-tip, corn, green beans, salad & Boysenberry Pie with Ice cream all came from Torin’s Mobile Feast Trailer.
Dinner for almost 60 members was served on a Long Harvest table. As the light faded, most folks were still seated around the table enjoying the company of fellow members.

Sunday Morning, Torin and crew served a wonderful Breakfast of French Toast, Eggs, Bacon and Fruit.

I’m sure that as word gets out how great the Marin Yacht Club Cruise was this year, it will once again “Sell Out” next year.

Marin Cruise Out

Sign Up Now for the Marin Cruise.  If you cannot boat up, consider joining us for a portion of the events.

Sign-up for the marin cruise here.

Message from the Marin Cruise Out Committee:

Marin Yacht Club Labor Day Cruise
It is with great excitement that we bring an update regarding the Cruise. In an effort to bring all those attending a bit closer and to make this Cruise one to remember we are shaking it up a bit.  Instead of having the Saturday Night Pre Dinner hors d”oeuvres and then having 25 people jockey for space to throw those $20 dollar steaks on the BBQ and watching them burn, we have arranged with Torin Knorr to bring his Roadside Feast BBQ Trailer to Marin. Torin will be preparing the Dinner and we just added a Breakfast on Sunday Morning as well. This is going to be one heck of a Party. We will have tables and chairs set up so no one will need to go searching for a place to eat.  I told you we are trying to “Class this Cruise UP” !
Dinner will feature:
Apple wood spit roasted chickens;
Roto culotte steak ( like Brazilian Steakhouse);
Corn on the Cob;
Dry seared green beans;

all for $25 per person. You’d spend that much on a do it your self BBQ.
Breakfast will include:
French Toast;
Home made bacon;
Eggs to order;
all for $12.00

Please consider attending the Marin Yacht Club Sunday Dinner as well. It is “Proper Etiquette” to support the Host Club. Marin does wonderful things for us so please join us for the Sunday Dinner.

Please direct questions to one of us.

Safety Update Regarding the Old Bay Bridge Removal From PICYA

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.
Thank you,

Commander, Eleventh Coast Guard District (dpw)

Sausalito Cruise

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!
