Delta Doo Dah Bash This Weekend

The Delta Doo Dah promised to “turn it up to 11” this year, and various friends new and old will help us live up to that promise on Saturday, July 13.

Delta Bay Marina, off the San Joaquin River on the Delta Loop, will host a shindig that just keeps ramping up. We hope you’ll join us from noon to 4 p.m. for BBQ and tasting of local wines. The BBQ will be free to Doo Dah fleet members. A $10 donation for wine tasting will benefit a local charity. Rio Vista artist, sailor and Doo Dah vet Robbie Murphree Gabriel has organized a Delta ArtFest featuring exhibits by 20 artists. Starting at 2 p.m, singer/songwriter Michael McNevin will lead a jam session. He’ll bring amps and mics; musicians, bring your instruments.

At 4 p.m., Bill Wells will present a seminar about the maritime history of the Bay and Delta river route. He’ll share photos dating back to the early 20th century. Bill is the executive director of the California Delta Chambers and the author of the Delta Rat column in Bay & Delta Yachtsman magazine.
