South Bay Opening Day, May 5 – 7, 2017!

The weekend-long event began with the kick-off dinner Friday at CPYC which was a combined effort of Yvette Yong, our Vice-Commodore and Poplar Creek.  The theme for the weekend was Pioneer Days – to be in sync with Redwood City celebrating their 150th year.SBPioneersposter (1) (002)
