December Events at IYC
We’re not done yet! Celebrate the holiday season at Island Yacht Club. This Saturday December 6th is the 38th annual Lighted Yacht Parade on the Alameda Estuary. Club member Joel Sailer will be donating the use of his boat again this year for our parade entry. Come to the club during the day on Dec 6th and help decorate the boat. Then jump aboard that evening and join the parade. Last year was a lot of fun, and some pics of our 2013 boat are attached. If you’d like to participate or for more info, Contact John New @ 510-529-8227.
The following weekend, Sunday Dec 14th, is the second race in our long running Island Days series. IYC will be hosting an informal holiday gathering after the race. I’ll be serving some treats from the galley, and members who plan to attend are encouraged to bring food potluck style as well. This event will start around 2:30pm.
Mark your calendar for our upcoming 2015 events as well. The club will do its annual “around the island” cruise on January 1st, and our annual Crab Feed will be held on Saturday January 17th. Stay tuned for more announcements on the Crab Feed. I think we put on one of the best in the Bay Area for the price and once again this year, I’ll be serving my famous roast garlic crab & Asian style chili garlic crab. Don’t miss out!
