Call of the Sea Calls Sailors to Their Annual Gala

Call of the Sea will hold their annual fundraising gala on Saturday, June 8. The event benefits Call of the Sea’s on-the-water education programs and the completion of the new educational tall ship Matthew Turner. The Bay Model and the adjacent Army Corps of Engineers dock in Sausalito will set the scene for the celebration. The theme this year will be “Let your dreams set sail.” Gala-goers will be feted with live music, ship tours, buffet dinner, an open bar and auctions.

Today is the deadline to enter the Delta Ditch Run, as much fun as you can pack into one day (and sometimes night) of sailing on inland waters.
