New Year 18
'Round Alameda Parade, Monday, January 1, 2018
The weather was almost as good as it could get. 62 degrees and sunshine, but no wind. That brought out a good Islander representation for the first day of 2018. We had 26 people representing 8 Islanders sailing aboard 6 boats on the waters of the Oakland Estuary and San Francisco Bay around Alameda Island to ring in 2018 in style.If you want to learn more and see the pictures, go to 'Round Alameda 1/1/18.




Fall Meeting
Fall Meeting & Winners' Lunch, Saturday, November 4, 2017, Encinal Yacht Club
A rainy morning gave way to a glorious afternoon along the Oakland Estuary at Encinal Yacht Club for us to celebrate the 2017 season and move forward to 2018. Encinal was hosting a 17-team high school regatta in FJs and we were treated to almost 30 boats on the water racing in A and B divisions. It was great fun to second guess wind shifts and strategy from the balcony as the kids displayed highly refined racing skills. We had 32 folks representing 15 Islanders who enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by EYC. We awarded 2017 prizes and awards, and elected 2018 Officers. There was even an Islander version of the Gettysburg address. If you want to learn more and see the pictures, go to Fall Meeting 2017.




The Fleet
Nationals Regatta, October 14th at GGYC
After two false starts over a two and a half hour postponement for light winds, we finally had a great race starting at 1400 on a gentle 8-knot westerly wind. We had five boats racing and 9 represented. Cassiopeia won the Nationals Regatta, but everyone had a great time. 2017 Nationals Regatta Results and Pictures.
