Details

Wednesday night, we will race in the Oakland Yacht Club Sweet Sixteen Series race. This is a fun race in the Oakland Estuary - light wind, lots of tacking. I need a couple of intermediate to experienced hands.

After the race, there is a dinner in the club - cheap burgers and beers.

We will meet at the boat on Dock Five at 5:30 p.m. and leave the dock by 6:00 p.m. The start / finish line is right out in front of the club, so we don't have to spend a lot of time getting there and getting back.

Several of my regular crew will be on board, so we only have a couple of open spots. Sign up on the waiting list and I will inform you when you are selected.

Please bring a sweater and a jacket for when it cools off. Bring foul weather gear and a PFD if you have them (I have some extras), and wear non-marking soled shoes.

I have ginger ale and bottled water on board.

There is no "charge" for this event, but donations toward expenses are always appreciated (such as the $99.00 entrance fee) - There is a Greek fisherman's cap on the chart table for this purpose.

OK, let's go sailing and have some fun.
