Holiday Christmas Party and Lighted Boat Contest

Sequoia Yacht Club Holiday BurgeeSign up here

Decorate your boat and make ready your best appetizers and drinks for this year’s lighted boat contest. Our theme: Walking Through A Yachting Wonderland. 

All participants will remain at their slips (or guest dock) throughout the night for viewing enjoyment.  For those not in the Port of Redwood City harbor, no problem, contact the SYC Port Captain for guest dock space. 

Our lovely ’Three Queens’ will be taking part as judges this year, starting their scoring at or around 5pm.  1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be awarded to the best decorated boats. 

Want to really wow the judges?  Prepare your best holiday appetizer and/or “docktail” and you are a contender for the GRAND prize awarded to the best overall holiday experience. 

Grand Prize is 1 month free rent, courtesy of our friends at the Port of Redwood City.  The other three prizes are $200, $150, & $100 Westmarine gift cards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively.  After the contest, please join us at the club for the holiday party.

Our holiday dinner will be:

  • Salmon
  • Ham
  • Potatoes
  • Green beans
  • Salads
  • Dessert
  • Wassail bowl

All this for $20.

Do you have a favorite family hors d'oeuvre that reminds you of Christmas past? If so, bring it and share. So far, it looks like we'll have smoked salmon and pickled herring on the piano -- what's in your pantry?
