What About COVID?

After two years of meeting via Zoom for the Delta Doo Dah Kickoff, we’re stoked to be back in person this year at RYC, but please note these COVID protocols: RYC requires vaccinations inside their buildings; masks are optional.

The event is free to attend. To qualify to win door prizes, sign up for the Delta Doo Dah, if you haven’t already. That’s free too! Please register by 5 p.m. on Friday the 20th if you’re planning to come to the Kickoff.

    I am not sure how true this is, but a good friend and mentor had been telling me that the water level in the Antioch/Pittsburg area of the delta has been lower than normal. This will make the already shallow entrances (like Owl Harbor and the Antioch Marina) more difficult at low tide.

    Hi Grant, I haven’t heard of low water levels in those parts of the Delta. From what I’ve seen (totally unscientific observation) water levels appear normal. However, silt happens. As do weeds. Best to enter harbors new to you on a rising tide.

    Any chance the session was recorded? We couldn’t make it by before the end due to work delaying departures.

    Hi Erik — I’m sorry; we had some hopes of recording video, or maybe just audio, but the seminar and gathering ended up being low-tech, casual, interactive and un-mic’ed.
