Needs a location


The weather is breaking so let's go for a sail!

Join us on the sailing vessel About Time as we leave from Berkeley Marina for a fun cruise around the bay. We'll find a nice spot for a potluck lunch, grill out on the BBQ, and then sail around for a bit on the way home.

The sailing vessel About Time is a comfortably equipped Hunter 45' with plenty of deck and cabin space for up to eight passengers. We'll take off 11:00 sharp! from Berkeley and return late afternoon. Depending on wind and currents we could go to Paradise Cove or find a place near Angel Island.

WHO: This event is for FIRST TIMERS! For those who have sailed on About Time several times already, we'll ask that you leave a spot for folks who haven't been out with us yet. Join the waiting list and we'll put people on board by Wednesday night. I'll send out details on how to find the boat several days before the event.

No sailing experience is needed and there's no cost for the trip. The only cost is getting to Berkeley Marina and bringing something for a potluck lunch.

WHEN: Show up as early as 10:00am, you can help get the boat set up. Not that there's much to do. We'll shove off by 11:00am. We'll try to be back to Berkeley approximately 6:00pm.

POTLUCK: And of course bring something for the grill! Or you can choose to bring anything for an 8-person potluck picnic: cheese, baguettes, appetizers, kebobs, salads, fruit, chocolate brownies, guacamole n chips, (dare I say) wine. There's a full kitchen below and plenty of room to store your gear.

We'll organize who brings what by posting comments on this meetup.

Fair Winds!
