Dogwatch at the Richmond Yacht Club Beer Can Series

Cinde Lou Delmas of the Alerion 38 Another Girl sent us this shot taken by Kellie Taylor of dogs watching dogs during the daytime dogwatch in Richmond Yacht Club’s Wednesday night beer can series last week.

Cinde Lou wrote to say, “Things are starting back — oh, so fun!

“Xunaan (goddess of the water in Mayan, foreground) on Another Girl talking to Cali on Carmelita, owned and skippered by Chris Lewis. Xunaan is a Portuguese water dog and, like Cali, she does not shed. Cali is a Woodle: Wheaton terrier and poodle mix. Both of these furry foredeck crew love to race and sail. Cali goes fishing too! She likes being forward and comes back when they tack.”

While ‘Caution’ flags continue to fly around the waterfront, the careful protocols of racers and race committees plus the increasing vaccination rate among the sailing population are resulting in better racing and sailing than last year. For dogs and people. If you haven’t registered for your local evening beer can series, now is the time. Find one near you here.

    Xunaan is really the tactician on board.

    Man and Woman’s best friends make great crew. I had a Wheaton Terrier back in the late eighties and Reilly was great crew. I had a power boat and a Glouster Gull rowing dory in the SF Marina. Reilly and I would Row down to Pier 39 and back. He loved sitting on the stearn of the Gull and loved the attention he received from the tourists waving at him. The Woodle and the Water dog are on our short list for future.
