9 am? Noon: Boat visiting.

Noon? 5 pm: 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, decals, hats, and other stuff from the WOA for sale.

Happy hour from 6-7. Dinner at 7pm at the San Leandro Yacht Club. Cost per person: $20 for either chicken, steak or for the Vegetarians, Grilled Portobello Mushroom. Dinner includes veggies, baked potatoes w/all the fixings, salad and an incredible fattening desert. Drinks are not included. Kids under 12 are price.

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.

At low mean tide (0.0 ft.) the marina has about 2.5 to 3 feet in the shallowest area by the fuel dock
Consult local Tide information for the exact time and depth.

If by land:
Exit the 880 Freeway at Marina Blvd. Exit west. Continue on Marina Blvd. and bear left at the Y going into the marina. Turn right on Mulford Point Drive for the San Leandro Yacht Club, which is the first building on the left. Look for the Westsail flags flying on the boats. There are gates at the docks, so call the host owner 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.


For Tide information for the SL channel - try


I have no idea if this site is accurate!!


For the SF Bay area sailors - I'd like to include in a slide show, photos of your sailing activities and/or boat projects since the last rendevzous... I have a few photos of WS on the bay to get started but would like more images - if you are willing to share your images email them to jay_bietz at sbcglobal dot net.

ATTENTION: Those Westsailors who intend to sail to the San Leandro Yacht Club for the October Rendezous let me know if you will require a 30 or 50 amp connector for shore power. The Marina will supply the necessary adapters.
ALSO: This subject is the most important--I need a count of all the folks, sail, walk or crawl in, who will be staying for dinner and breakfast.
