Youth Sailing Program – 2017

by Mark Malcolm, Port Captain
Your future crew and the next America’s Cup skippers are in the making at
CPYC’s  Youth Sailing Program! 
It is mid-season and CPYC’s Youth Sailing  program is in full swing.
  This summer has provided an abundance of excellent weather
 for the participants.  In our program, junior sailors learn the basics of sailing, racing, and boating  safety from our certified sailing instructors.
 We offer seven week-long sessions each summer.  Participant’s ages range from 8-13.  In its training fleet Coyote Point YC has 10 Optimists prams,  two Lasers, and two Puffers for the young  sailors. (Of course, adventurous adult club members have access to the fleet, when  the junior sailors aren’t using them.)
The Youth Sailing camp starts at 9:00 and runs  until 4:00 each weekday during the summer months. The final week of this year’s program will be the week of August 7-11.  Club members can take advantage of the program at a discount rate. If you know a young person who might be interested in learning to sail and having a sailing adventure this summer, contact  CPYC via our website,
Program instructors  are:  Keven Kirberg,  Meris Walsh, and Cyarah Vince.
Here are some great pictures of our Youth Sailing Camp taken on June 30, 2017:

The band, “Sweet Talk” is described as a “compilation” band and plays music from a variety of different genres.  The real hit was their lead singer, Gayle Sutherland, who had the most amazing voice – everyone was just spellbound!

Cruise-in of Alameda and Oakland Yacht Clubs on Memorial Day Weekend 2017

Our Port Captain, Mark Malcolm reports that while CPYC was cruising out to Half Moon Bay for Memorial Day weekend, there was still a great deal of activity around the club. Two groups, Oakland YC and Alameda YC came in, bringing 18 boats between them for a four day / three night visit.  Sailing conditions on the way to Coyote Point were reported as excellent on Friday and Saturday.

 Between the number of deep draft boats coming in and the extreme minus tides that weekend, (-1.8, -1.6,-1.4) we had to place some of the cruise in boats around the marina, rather than on the guest dock. Thanks to all the folks who went to Half Moon Bay and graciously let us put visiting boats in their slips.

Memorial Day 2017 1 (002) 

On Friday a small shark swimming around the marina provided our visitors with some amusement, at no expense to the club.

All those visitors made for busy evenings at the bar, allowing Linda in get her full cardio workout in while serving a full house.  Oakland joined us for the Backyard BBQ and Lobster boil on Saturday night. Our two pound lobster dinner for just $34 was a bit hit and is a steal at that price.
