Cruise Out Recap


As we sunset our tradition of the Oyster Point Yacht Club Cruise Out, we have created a new one with Sierra Point Yacht Club.

Mark Roper & Sogno d’oro

Although it was a rainy Sunday morning we had 3 brave boats cruise up to Sierra Point Yacht Club, Mark Roper with Sogno d’oro, Brad Jones with Haven and Roger Emerick – St Francis with Seawolf.  Don’t you worry there were plenty of asphalt cruisers to make up about 50 people joining the fun.  The brunch was homemade by the Sierra Point Yacht Club volunteers and include eggs benedict, fritta, bacon, hash browns, sweet breads, fruit salad, strong coffee, and all the yacht club brunch cocktails you would want including yummy Gin Fizzes, and Bloody Marys.  Sierra Point has a great outdoor/indoor feel with a banque/bart room opening to an enclosed deck with a firepit and lovely view of the Marina. Not to mention it’s just one marina north of Oyster Point.

Once everyone had a chance to enjoy the brunch Mark Bettis recapped a wonderful cruise year and announced the 2018 Cruise Awards:

Gary Edwards Receiving Most Cruises Attended by a Power Boat
  • MOST CRUISES ATTENDED BY SAILBOAT: Catherine Miskow on Shannon
  • MOST CRUISES ATTENDED BY POWER BOAT: Gary Edwards on Panda Angler
  • CRUISE WITH THE MOST BOATS ATTENDING: Ross Bowling with the Marin Cruise Out

Thank you Mark for heading the last 2 years of Cruises! You have grown the program and have left me a great launching pad.

Up next was the announcement of the 2019 Cruise Schedule.  To say the least we have a great year planned including some long time favorites, Marin Yacht Club and Encinal Yacht Club, with some new adventures of an anchor outs at Clipper Cover.  

We hope to see you at one of our upcoming cruise outs:

  • SOUTHBEACH YACHT CLUB – April 12th to 14th

For a full calendar of Cruise outs please go to the Cruise 2019 page on the CPYC website or email cruise@cpyc.com. Let’s make this the best Cruise Season yet.

Last but not least we passed the mic to Steve Swanson for a recap of the racing season and to announce the 2018 Regatta Awards:

Thank you Steve for continuing to run our Regatta program.  

Don’t let the cold weather and lack of wind fool you, our winter racing season is in full swing with 2 regattas, Brrrr Rabbit & Double Up and Back completed.  The next club regatta is John Pitcher Memorial Race on March 2nd, which all boats in the Coyote Point Marina are welcome to join.  Last but not least our Winter Sailing Series on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month have started as well.  If you haven’t raced and want to try it out, don’t be scared. We love having new skippers join us so take a leap and come to the next skippers meeting.

All in all it was a great day despite the rain and hope to see many more cruises to Sierra Point Yacht Club.
