We’re opening Delta Doo Dah Lucky 13 for registrations at noon today, further celebrating ‘the luck of the Irish’ (see our America’s Cup story in this same edition of ‘Lectronic Latitude).
You’ll find that sign-ups are quick and easy — and still free. But go grab your credit card anyway. You’ll want to buy a Lucky 13 burgee (and fly it so that your fellow fleet members and marina hosts can spot you), and this year’s logowear, an antimicrobial neck gaiter in green heather.
There are oh so many uses for the neck gaiter: an impromptu face covering or second mask, sun protection, mosquito deterrent or a cozy layer of warmth on a chilly evening. Order swag at the same time as you register to make sure you get yours — supplies will be limited. (We ran out early last year!) Plus we’ll waive the postage and handling charge if you order and pay with your registration.
Like last year, we’re planning for an online kickoff event, so even if you’re not in the Bay Area you’ll be able to attend. More details on that later; the date in May is TBA.
Over the weekend, we learned that Delta Bay Marina on the San Joaquin River in Isleton will again host us for a party, on August 14. Activities will be firmed up later, but will probably include a BBQ lunch, ArtFest, live music and a presentation on Delta history by Bill Wells. Harbormaster Eric Chiu says they can offer free slips to as many as 20 Delta Doo Dah fleet members on August 14-15.
