As the group organizer, I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:

When: Wednesday, July 4,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Berkeley Marina
Spinnaker Way
Berkeley, CA 94710

If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Yes".)

You can always get in touch with me through my group profile on Meetup.


I've added the following disclaimer to the event description:

*The money mentioned is a voluntary contribution in the opinion of the Group Organizer, Capt. Dan has stated that if it's too much for you to contribute, then email him.  This meets my definition of voluntary. Any comments can be directed at the group organizer by clicking on the 'Contact Us' link on the web pages.


As a sailor, I'm always looking to the horizon to discern what sort of weather might be coming our way.  The US Coast Guard is stepping up it's efforts in regards to 'illegal charters'.  This is territory that I'd rather my assistant organizers not venture into.  Even if they are licensed captains, even if they have charter insurance.  There have been reports of requirements that legal charter businesses be registered with the port authorities. I urge all of us to gain some experience with monitoring Vessel Traffic Control on VHS Channel 14.  It's apparent that Charter Vessels are required to check in with Vessel Traffic Control.

The North Bay Sailing Meetup group organizes sailing trips with charter businesses. If that is what you want as a member, or an assistant organizer, then I suggest you chart a course for that group.  I'd rather our group watch what happens over there, before we sail into those waters.
