2007 NorCal Rendezvous 10



Since no one else has stepped up to take on the organization of the rendezvous this year I find myself in the position of being this year's organizer. This will be my 5th time hosting a WOA rendezvous. Since we are cutting it close without much planning time I can definitely use some help if there is anyone else that can lend a hand as well, please let me know!

We do have the venue locked in as of now. The event will be at the San Leandro Marina starting on Friday October 5th - Sunday October 7th. The San Leandro Yacht Club are again hosting the dinner on Saturday the 6th and breakfast on Sunday the 7th.

I don't have a full list of Westsailors in the bay area so please pass this information along to anyone I may have missed.

If you do plan on attending, please send me your boat length, name, how many nights you are staying and how many people you'll have for dinner & breakfast. (dinner is $15 per person and Breakfast is $10 per person)

More details to come....
W32 Tortuga


Randy: I believe that this is also the Fleet week -- weekend.



Hi Jay, Correct it is the same weekend. It was the only weekend I was available to pull this together though. Hope you can make it out! Spread the word!

Randy, I still am waiting for the flyer info so I can do a mailing.

Bud Taplin

I did a mailing today of the flyer on the Northern California Westsail rendezvous. Sent out 100 of them to all owners and some wanabees I have on my list in Northern California and Southern Oregon.



The 2007 Northern California Rendezvous

Contact Randy Leasure of the good ship W32 Tortuga for information and reservations
Cell phone: 415-254-7296

Welcome! All Westsails, Westsailors and those who wannabe. Bring your boat or just yourself. We have dock space for all boats (but please LET US KNOW if you are bringing a boat). Early Birds can come Friday and stay through Sunday.

Rendezvous Schedule:

Arrival of early birds
**Come by 6:30 pm and enjoy an early bird wine and beer slurping at the host boat (W32 Tortuga) or just look for the crowd. Bring your own barbecuables for a pot luck.


Morning: Westsails and wannabe-Westsailors arrive. Look for the Westsail flags fluttering from masts! Join us on the dock for coffee and donuts/danishes/bagels. Registration on the dock.

9 am? Noon: Boat visiting.

Noon? 5 pm: Dock programs by the mighty sailmaker of the stars - Kern of Kern?s Sails?if he shows. Bud Taplin gives his infamous two-beer surveys and prowls the docks and boats with ideas and insults galore?Lots of visiting and ogling?and maybe a WESTSAIL MINI SWAP MEET !!!!! That is if you bring your junk, collectables, used or unused stuff or more to trade or sell to other Westsailors. We?ll array them on the docks. We will also have some tee shirts and other stuff from the WOA for sale.

6:30 pm: Drinks and dinner at the San Leandro Yacht club. Cost per person: $15, not including drinks. Afterwards, a surprise program and giveaway of many prizes, courtesy of Randy Leasure.


Morning? Breakfast at the yacht club. Cost per person: $5.

Bon Voyage all day!

Coming and Going?

If by sea:
San Leandro Channel: The approach is pretty straightforward but remember: YOU MUST STAY INSIDE THE CHANNEL MARKERS. Unless you want to hang out in the mud until the next tidal change. The marina entrance is at 37 40.30 Lat, 122 13.29 Long. After entering the marina area, turn left into the marina itself. We will monitor channels 9 and 16.

If by land:
Exit the 880 Freeway at Marina Blvd. Exit west. Continue on Marina Blvd. And then bear left on Neptune Dr. Turn right on N. Dike Rd. for San Leandro Yacht Club or turn on S. Dike Rd. to find all the boats. There are gates at the dock so call Terry or wave us down and someone will let you in. For out-of-towners, the Oakland Airport is very close. The San Leandro Marina Inn is directly on the water next to everything. They can be reached at 800-786-7783.

The more boats, owners/crews and wanabees the better.

See you there !


Hi Randy:

Just a thank you for your hard work on the NoCal Rendezous in San Leandro -- we had a great time. See you next year or maybe on the Bay.
