Based in Alameda, Encinal Yacht Club holds their Friday night Twilight Races on the Estuary. On August 18, "The fog was starting to come into the East Bay hills and created moments of sunshine as the warm glow of a sunset started," said Fred Fago, who took these photos.
EYC’s Friday night races alternate with Island YC’s Island Nights, and Oakland YC hosts a Sweet Sixteen Series every Wednesday; the last one will be this Wednesday, August 30. The EYC series wraps up on September 8; Island Nights conclude on September 15. Both clubs take this Friday off.
Although some beer can series elsewhere have wrapped up for the season, there’s still time to catch three more races on the usually pleasant Estuary. For a more comprehensive schedule, see our online Calendar.
