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). Slips have 50 AMP plugs with some 30 Amp. Slip Fees are $10 pre night for this event and include a gate key.

Rendezvous Schedule:
FRIDAY Early Bird arrivals: October 1 We can eat on board or at a nearby restaurant.

Morning: Westsails and wannabe-Westsailors arrive. Look for the Westsail flags fluttering from masts on dock G/H or J. We will be standing by on Channel 16 to assist your arrival.

Join us on the dock for arrival refreshments and registration for your slip and gate key at the dock.

Noon? 5 pm: Bud Taplin gives his infamous two-beer surveys, answers questions and prowls the docks and boats with ideas and insults galore?Lots of visiting and ogling. We will also have some tee shirts, decals, hats, and other stuff from the WOA for sale.

5pm -7pm Happy hour with slides of boat projects and bay cruising during the last year in the SLYC.

7pm Dinner at the San Leandro Yacht Club.

8 pm post dinner event - Open to suggestions for a talk by someone interesting.

Cost per person: $25 per adult and 10$ for kids under 12. The menu is not decided at this time but a vegetarian plate will be included. The costs include our use of the club house bar, showers and bathrooms for the Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

There will be a drawing with prizes and who knows what else.


Morning? Breakfast at the yacht club will either be a Cold Buffet - $5.00 or Hot Buffet for $10.00 so we?ll take a pole before the event.

Boats head home? as time and tide allows.

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 16 and 68.

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.
