Join PICYA’s Fourth Annual Treasure Island 360 Cruise

Pacific Inter-Club Yacht Association (PICYA) is inviting skippers of the 105-member yacht club association to enjoy the Fourth Annual Treasure Island 360 Cruise on Sunday, February 18. The Treasure Island 360 Cruise was launched in 2021, and runs in collaboration with the Treasure Island Museum events commemorating the 1939 World’s Fair, and PICYA’s Hearst Regatta off Treasure Island (TI) in 1939 and general participation during the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition.

The boat cruise will meet and start from west of the TI ferry terminal at 11 a.m, in coordination with an 11:30 a.m. flyover of vintage planes, comprising four to six volunteer pilots who have collected and maintained their crafts out of a passion for the thrill of flying and a deep respect for history. The pilots will circle and cross the island twice. Watch the flyover from the boats or from land, and wave like hell so they can feel your thrills.

If you have a boat, come join the parade at 11:00 a.m. If you are on land, observe the start of the cruise on the west side at the ferry terminal, or catch the boat parade at various viewpoints on the island during the one-hour slow cruise. Spot classic boats from the ’40s and ’50s. Power and sailboats join together to celebrate the freedom of boating and a true passion for being together on the water.

The parade will be led by PICYA Staff Commodore Patti Mangan of South Beach YC on Anabel (Chubb 34), followed by Treasure Island YC, Island YC, Classic Yacht Association, San Francisco YC, Encinal YC, Sequoia YC, Barbary Coast Boat Club, Single Sailors Association, Golden Gate YC, Oakland YC, Ballena Bay YC, BAADS, Blue Water Foundation and many more.
