2018 Summer Sailstice in Alameda
Saturday, June 23, 2018 | 11 am to 5 pm
Encinal Yacht Club, 1251 Pacific Marina, Alameda
One of the event’s most popular attractions are the free boat rides offered throughout the day. Conducted within the Alameda estuary, the boats are skippered by experienced sailors and provide a hands-on sailing experience for all.
In addition to exhibits and free boat rides, highlights include a rescue demonstration by the U.S. Coast Guard; an amateur cardboard boat building contest culminating in a race, and tours of the Maritime Museum tall-ship, the ALMA.
There will also be a presentation in the EYC Regatta Room at 3 pm about the new, Bay-Area tall-ship, the Matthew Turner, berthed in Sausalito.
Attendees will enjoy a day of bright sunshine, live music, food and beverages on the Encinal Yacht Club’s lawn with the estuary as a backdrop.
