Tues Jan 1 'Round Alameda Parade This fun annual event is a chance to get on the waster and kick off the New Year with a blast. All are invited to stop at various yacht clubs around Alameda Island to sample their offerings of chili, Bloody Marys and Gin Fizzes. This year the tide is much more cooperative with high tide of 5.2 feet occuring about 1330. We need that much to get out around the island for those that want to go all the way around. A great Islander gathering place is 10:00 am at either Marina village - Gate 8 - or Encinal YC. We typically stand watch on channel 72 to stay in touch. This is great fun if the weather cooperates (or play Groundhog if it's bad!)
Sat. Mar 23Spring Meeting at Golden Gate Yacht Club Here's the spot to get a jump on the new season. Sail on over Friday night, get a good night's sleep and be ready when the fun begins Saturday morning. The Spring Meeting will cover the Race and Cruise programs for 2013. Docking is $1/foot/night.

Fri -Sun. Apr 26-28? Encinal Cruise & Svendsen's Night on 4/27 5:00 pmIt's always fun to gather at Encinal's spacious Guest dock, enjoy the pool if the weather is nice, and then be treated to the very special Svendsen's Night on Sturday. Svendsen's opens its doors after hours just for the I-36 fleet and offers great discounts on most items. Line in particular is often 40% off! So plan to join us by boat for the weekend or by car for Svendsen's (and maybe some ice cream dockside afterwards.)

Benicia is a nice harbor and a fun town to explore. A big plus is an invitation to dinner Saturday at Rob & Ruby Blenderman's house - just a nice walk from the marina. Some options here! Sail up on Friday with those that can get away from work. Sail up on Saturday to arrive in time for dinner with Rob & Ruby. Return to the Bay on Sunday, or use this as a jumping off point for a week-long Delta cruise with July 4th on Thursday!
