Happy Monday!

Light winds and sunshine were the reports from the weekend sailing! We don't mind a little rain and it's super nice when it's restricted to night-time and/or weekdays!

We've already had our first BKB and BCC graduates of 2018 - way to go!

For those of you who have the optional BBYC membership through us - don't forget to take a look at the event schedule! There are several events coming up with the opportunity to be social and hang out with some really great folks!

Stay dry and warm!

California Boater Card - by Don Gilzean

As of January 1, 2018 all persons 20 years of age and younger who operate any motorized vessel on state waterways, including powered sailboats and paddlecraft, are required to carry a boater card issued by the State of California, Division of Boating and Waterways.....Click for complete article.

Members Note: Don't forget - cockpit cushions should be stored in the head or shower area! Please don't put them on cushions or wood (like in the V-Berth or the main cabin). They go into the boat damp and transfer the moisture to the interior. This time of year it is very hard for us to keep the insides of the boats dry. The same goes for life-jackets and type IV throw-ables - please don't put damp gear on the cushions!

Upcoming Checkouts

Be sure to get checked out on every boat you are eligible for. Scheduled checkouts are free and the more boats you are checked out on, the easier it is to get a boat for last-minute sailing all year! Remember, this email is accurate when I write it, but the live schedule is on our website and is subject to change!
