2014 Opening Day On The Bay – UPDATE

LATE BREAKING UPDATE:

I’ve waited to see if the forecast might improve, and it’s a bit better, but not good enough. While others may be out there, we won’t be. Rain and winds of 22 gusting 30 is not a recipe for a good time…and a low tide at 5pm when we return to the cove sealed the deal.

 

For reasons of weather and low participation, the TIYC Opening Day on the Bay cruise is hereby cancelled.

 

Sunday is a good day to stay home and watch sailing channel.

 

We’ll try again soon.

Will Smith

Hi,
Opening Day is less than a week away (Sunday, April 27, 2014).

Instead of doing the parade, we will participate in the blessing of the fleet in racoon straight (Corinthian YC) then cruise over to Sausalito to enjoy the afternoon wandering downtown.

9:30 Meet at the club
10:30 cruise to CYC (Raccoon Straight)
See the chart PICYA-fleet_bless_chart
See the CYC Flyer for the weekend here
Opening Day on the Bay Weekend _ Corinthian Yacht Club
11:00 – 12:30 Blessing of the Fleet (pass by the USS Potomac)
Noon high tide +5.4
12:00 Sausalito
3:30 head home
5:15 low tide +1.1

Should be a cool and refreshing day after several days of rain.

Bringing your boat? Please check in with me. 510-589-7410

Thanks,
Bill Smith

Heading South for Baja Rally on Serendipity

This was sent in by Fred W Gibson on October 17th.
Ahoy Maties! Some pics of Serendipty heading out for San Diego and then the Baja HaHa Rally to Cabo San Lucas starting Oct 28th. Captain Steve, crew members Dave (just to San Diego), Matt and Fred W. We didn’t have a Bridge and Board quorum but we discussed club business anyway….

Captain cooked us breakfast and then in the evening baked cookies. Forgot the hot chocolate mix to go with them but picked that up in Santa Cruz. No mutiny here!

The Essers in their boat are heading for the Rally and leaving one day behind us.

Good representation for our little TIYC.

The Tigress “turns left”

“Where will you go?”
“Out the Gate and hang a left…”

That’s been the plan and the dream for a very long time. And that’s what we did.

Beautiful San Francisco Bay put on a show, sparkling in the morning light just to make sure we’d know what we are missing. There was a big sloppy swell running off the coast – a bit of a bronco ride. Tigress took it in stride. The bilges and Elena’s baking supplies are still dry. It seemed like any other daysail, except the dock box is empty and the mail forwarded.

After anchoring at Half Moon Bay we opened a special bottle of wine and toasted new adventures. And maybe a nap. We’re anchored in a beautiful sheltered spot near the Maverick’s surf spot and God’s golf tee.

Tonight we’ll decide where and when we go next, or we’ll decide to decide another day.

We miss you already.

Cheers,
David
