Crew can board at the Guest Dock at the Sausalito Yacht Club in downtown Sausalito (next to the Ferry Landing).
Willin' is ready to race with a slick new bottom and brand new sails.
I will have a couple of my regular crew on board, but would like to bring a couple of newbies along for the ride.
This is fun race with a party at the Sausalito Yacht Club after the finish.
You are welcome to join me taking the boat from Alameda to Sausalito and back again, or you can board the boat in Saulsalito.
This is an all day event, so get a good night's rest, eat breakfast before you come, and bring a snack to tide you over until dinner.
The first gun is at noon and you should plan on being on the boat by 1000 hours.
I have ginger ale and bottled water on board.
Willin' is a big, modern, safe, well-equipped, well-maintained yacht with full electronics and instrumentation.
There will be a half-hour orientation to get you familiar with the boat and safety procedures prior to our departure.
It is especially important that you answer the questions when you register so that I have your contact information and your experience level. I will choose some "experienced" and some "newbie" crew for this event.
OK, let's go sailing and have some fun.
