All Westsails and Westsailors past, present and future. Bring your boat, crew, or just yourself. We have dock space for all boats.  

After more than a decade of meeting at the San Leandro Marina - we have decided to try Marina Bay Yacht Harbor in Richmond, CA. 

We are hoping that the centralized location will work well for everyone. The Tradewinds Sailing School and Club will allow us to use their patio and lounge for our Satruday dinner and evening event.
Register in advance online and contact Jay Bietz if you have questions.
