What’s on the Sailing Horizon in 2024?

We’re sometimes amazed at all the information available on our own website! Like any sailor in the crow’s nest, we do our best to keep an eye on what’s on the sailing horizon. Our race and calendar editor, Christine Weaver, has done a great job assembling the compilation of fun “things to do” for sailors for years. It shows up in our monthly print publication, online and in our annual Northern California Sailing Calendar. It includes education seminars, sea chanteys, races, cruises, boat shows, rallies and much more. Looking through it we were reminded that Richmond Yacht Club’s next Sail a Small Boat Day is coming up on Saturday, March 2.

The Pacific Cup is running their second seminar this coming weekend at the St. Francis Yacht Club to train participants on provisioning and crew prep. Oakland Yacht Club has a California Boater Safety Card course coming up on March 9. There are two boat shows coming in April, with Svendsen’s Spring Fling April 12-13 and the rejuvenated Newport Beach Boat Show April 18-21. The Singlehanded Sailing Society is running their shorthanded Corinthian Race tomorrow, and Berkeley Yacht Club is having a Crew Party on March 8.

If you flip through this and pick some key dates you’ll find yourself doing more sailing on your boat this year.

Maybe you’re wondering why your event isn’t in the calendar. It’s possible you sent your event in to [email protected] by the 10th of the month prior to publication, and then we lost it when we accidentally left it in our pocket when we put our clothes in the wash. But if you send your event in by March 10 there’s a pretty good chance it will make our April issue.

To make sure you don’t miss another opportunity to sail, you can pick up a hard copy of the Northern California calendar and magazine at our distribution points here. If you see events but don’t have a boat or don’t have crew, put you name on our Crew List here.

Other times you don’t need a calendar. All you need is a forecast for a warm, sunny Saturday to go sailing. The forecast looks pretty good if you want to get the wrinkles out of your main this weekend.
