Islander 36 Association
2009 Cruise Schedule

Welcome to the 2009 Cruise Schedule. This is our tentative schedule, and as we get details for individual events you can Click on the "Get Details / Make Reservation" links for more information for specific events, and to let the Cruise Coordinators know you are joining the fleet. On-line registration forms will also be available for the current event on the Events page about a month before the event. If you would like to volunteer to be an Event Coordinator, email or call the Cruise Chair Team Anna Stewart & Carol Williams.

Google Earth - Cruises: At our 2009 Spring Meeting our guest speaker Andrew Vik gave a great presentation on his travels in the Med, including a slide showing a Google Earth image of Italy showing his cruise legs and ports of call. Our distinguished Past Commodore and avid cruise fan Skipper Wall wondered if we couldn't do a similar thing for our cruises. So here are some choices for you. First, here is a static image of the 2009 Cruise Locations. A careful proofreader might ask what happened to the April 24-26 Encinal Cruise and the November 7 Fall Meeting at Oakland YC. Well, to get an image area large enough to cover even the main Bay and include Half Moon Bay, the "pins" for these two are hidden under the All Islander Pin for September 11-13. Now for the magic. If you have Google Earth, you can click on 2009 Google Earth Cruises and you will be able to zoom in and see all three - and even the wonderful "U" shape of the Encinal YC Guest dock. If you don't already have it (and it's a really fun toy), click here to get Google Earth.

Sat, March 21Spring Meeting - San Francisco Yacht Club in Belvedere. Race Chair Tom Newton has organized a New Rules Clinic for the morning, before the lunch and Spring Meeting. That's a good reason to sail over on Friday night, or drive in early on Saturday. Cruisers are encouraged to attend - learn that the rules are easy and no barrier to coming out and enjoying some racing!! The Spring Meeting will cover the Race and Cruise programs for 2009.

It's getting to be a tradition: it's the 3rd Annual All Islander Rendezvous. Arrive Friday night if possible - dinner at the Oakland Yacht Club. Saturday, arrive by early afternoon for a Fun Race, with the cruisers as spectators - racers are invited to come for the day. Then dinner at Encinal Yacht Club, and finally, a Sunday breakfast at Oakland YC to finish it off. For those who have not spent time looking at other Islanders, you will be amazed at the variety of styes and the ingenuity with which owners have added great gadgets and conveniences to their boats. Why it's just like an All Islander Boat Show!
