In light of this new information Sequoia Yacht Club will be closed to all members. We will keep you informed as to when we will reopen. We will remain closed at least until the "Shelter in Place" order is lifted.

This situation is something we never could have imagined. Your support and understanding is so appreciated.

Be safe.

More About The Port Of Redwood City

Redwood City and Redwood Creek were named after the redwood trees that were cut down in the Santa Cruz Mountains in the 19th century. They were floated down Redwood Creek, and shipped out to San Francisco at the creek's deep water channel on the Bay. Today, the Port of Redwood City is the only deep water port in the South Bay and is an important bulk shipping center. Materials such as concrete, gypsum, aggregate, and liquid chemicals are loaded onto large cargo ships docked at the port. In more recent years, high-tech industrial parks have been built near the port. Despite all this industrial activity, the port has attractive parks and trails.
