Richmond Yacht Club (RYC) is pleased to announce its 29th Sail a Small Boat Day to be held on December 4, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sail a Small Boat Day is a free, informal gathering open to anyone who wants to attend — sailors and non-sailors, young and old alike.
“We do this event to connect people in the Bay Area with small boat sailing. We expect that over 30 boats will be on the water and as many as 200 people may attend throughout the day. The club provides a free hot dog lunch for you and all who show up,” RYC wrote.
Bring your wetsuit and PFD if you have them, or warm, water-repellent clothing, and a change of clothes in case you do get wet. The boat rides are all free and are available on a first come, first served basis.
“Some small boats are complicated and some are simple. Some boats never change and some change all the time. Some move at light speed and some move at a more leisurely pace. Some are tippy and some are stable. Find the boat and fleet that are right for you!”
If you’re thinking about going along but are feeling a little unsure, here’s a wrap-up of the 2019 Sail a Small Boat Day.
The Richmond Yacht Club is located at 351 Brickyard Cove Road, Point Richmond, 94801, near the east end of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.
