The Moore 24 White Trash and Express 27s Ergo and El Raton approach the finish line of BAMA's Doublehanded Farallones Race on March 28.

Our 2015 Wall Calendars are still available. Is your boat in there?
Richmond YC's first Beer Can Race of the season will be held this Wednesday, April Fool’s Day, aka Beer Can Opening Day. All yachts are invited, even powerboats (no PWCs). Besides the "same old beer can race, a blessing of the pleasure craft and a predicted log race for powerboats will be offered. All yachts and crew compete for the Hoity-Toity Judge Elihu Smales Trophy Award." The dress code for the post-race prize-giving will be: blazers with pocket bullions, Breton red trousers, boaters or silly yachting caps with scrambled eggs, French sailor T-shirts and pleated skirts for the ladies (or, in reasonably good taste, facsimiles thereof). Since it is before Memorial Day, white gloves are optional. CPO shirts and 13 button bell bottoms score double points. The post-race barbecue and awards will be accompanied by a showing of the ever-evolving Beer Can, the Movie, the Director's Cut.
Awards be handed out for the SSS Corinthian Race at Oakland YC in Alameda on Wednesday, April 1, at 1930 hours. Even if you didn't place, be sure to pick up your shirts, applaud your competitors, and hear how the winners did it. The bar opens at 1900. See www.sfbaysss.org.
