Kilroy Found!

C Mark was found during an environmental survey by employees of the Oakland
International Airport who took the time to both contact us and to load
recover it from the rocks off the main runway. Seems that homeland security
had a problem with a small boat approaching bayside onto an active runway (
hmmm I wonder why? ). It all worked out for the best because they picked “C”
off the rocks and told us where to pick it up.

Jack Verducci volunteered the use of his truck then he, John Hernandez and
Jim Manishin liberated “Kilroy” from the East Bay. Some fiberglass and new
bottom paint and he’ll be good to go the next time a mark breaks loose!

St Francis YC Cruise Out

The three boats that dared to attend St. Francis: Woodknot, Tenacious and PandaAngler had a great time.  Woodknot and Tenacious left CPYC early on Friday morning to arrive at St Francis around noon.  PandaAngler left mid-afternoon in blustery conditions in order to make the ride up a little more exciting.  We were greeted at the guest dock of St. Francis by a small army of dock attendants bound and determined to tie up the Panda behind Woodknot.  Although they missed the first opportunity to get a line on a cleat due to a strong current and high wind pushing us off the dock, the Panda was well tied on the second try.  After checking in with the front desk and getting our guest pass, we relaxed on the boat for the remainder of the afternoon before heading to the downstairs bar and restaurant (which is casual) for a great dinner.  Staff at the club (and there was a veritable army of them) was very accommodating and made sure everyone was happy.

Weather was cool and foggy for most of the weekend, but everyone enjoyed hanging on the docks and on the boat.  I took the opportunity to visit Golden Gate Yacht Club on Saturday afternoon while walking around the area, another great club.  Dinner in the formal main dining room was great, as was brunch on Sunday morning.

Great trip with the opportunity to once again stay in the city.

If you did not know, the Pacific Cup, which is a semi-annual race between San Francisco and Honolulu, started last week on Monday and looks to be coming to a finish by the end of this week.  Coyote Point is proud to claim three boats that started the race:  Tiki J (Scott Dickinson as skipper),  Serenity (Eric Mueller as Skipper), and Shadowside (Lad Burgin as Skipper).  Serenity and Shadowside are both listed in Division A and started the race on Monday, July 11, 2016 at 10:10.  Tiki J is in Division B and started the race on Tusday, July 12, 2016 at 11:10.

At the time of this writing, Tiki J is leading its division, Shadowside is currently listed in 5th place of its division, and Serenity had to turn back due to a crew injury.  Currently, Serenity appears to be bound for the LA area and should make landfall in about a day or so.  The track of the race can be found here.
