Hidden Harbor Yacht Club members visited Sportsmen Yacht Club on the San Joaquin. The club house for Sportsman is the former Ferry "Sausalito" . It has been their club house since 1939. Their Club's hospitality was over the top.
First we had a cruise out to Pittsburg Yacht Club. Great hospitality and wonderful food and drink. Dancing and singing happened on Friday night. After this several members joined others at the Hilton Fireworks at Mandeville Tip. Except for two sprained ankles, everyone enjoyed the anchor out.
Hidden Harbor Yacht Club's annual Summer Sailstice event, A Whole (An Entire) race was held with a catered dinner afterwards. This year the perpetual tropy was officially renamed as the "Walley Shifler Memorial Trophy". We actually enjoyed some of the best sailing conditions we've seen. The over 31' winner was Mermaid Hunter, the 31' and under winner was Blue Angel, and the Back Door Charlie was Howlyn
