Cruise to Marin Yacht Club – Friday, September 1 – Monday, September 4, 2017

Colin Lindberg followed his week as Cruise Leader for the Delta cruise, by leading the cruise to the Marin Yacht Club.  This cruise is always the most popular of the year.  This year there were at least 24 boats participating and a number of members “between boats” joined the festivities as “asphalt cruisers.”

As with the previous week, Colin reported that it was “Hot, hot, hot.  Over 100 degrees and very little breeze.

Unfortunately, Commodore Andy Smith’s Dock Party on Saturday had to be cancelled because of the heat and lack of shade.  As you can see, everyone’s looking for shade or keeping cool in the pool!

There was a good BBQ on Saturday night – grill your own.

Sunday was the annual Bocce Ball Tournament:

It was also a time to celebrate Bill Hoyt’s and Emily Kimmel’s upcoming wedding in Canada, and they were given a great send-off!


On Monday, everyone was homeward bound, having had a very fun weekend!
