Encinal Yacht Club

Sign up here

Encinal YC is fully open; bathrooms, showers, pool, bar and food.  We will have a group dinner either in the EYC dining room or an outdoor barbecue on Saturday night.  Order either from the bar for the usual bar fare or from the dining room for chicken, beef or fish entrees.  The Cost is usually $12-15 for bar fare and $25-30 for dinner entrees.

June 26-27 is Pride Weekend with celebrations on Alameda on Monarch Street near bars and restaurants with great city views.  There will be live music, mural painting and other entertainments. A list of interesting venues is included in the cruise out documents on the sign up page.

Perhaps SYC should show its pride with a costume contest on Saturday night.  Let your freak fly and impress your fellow cruisers with your imagination or with what an unusual man or woman you would make

South Beach Cruise Out

Tom Keegan is the Cruise Out lead for the October Cruise Out to South Beach Harbor. There will be two group dinners - one on Friday and one on Saturday, location TBD. More information about Docktails, breakfasts, etc., will be made available as soon as Tom locks things in. 

Reserving slips got a little complicated for this cruise out because it is also the Red Bra Regatta weekend so we were limited to reserving a total of 10 slips for the club.  Tom posted asking people to contact him directly if they wanted to come, and a couple of boats reserved directly with SB (Boudicca 3.0 and Ferox) but are being counted against the SYC total. Like I said, complicated. BUT - additional slips are likely to be available directly through South Beach Harbor. If the signup shows all slips are taken, call South Beach and ask for a slip from them directly.
