Hosts & Deals

Berkeley Yacht Club will host our Opening Act, a Delta Seminar & Kickoff Party on Sunday, May 22, 2016.

Little Venice Yacht Club on Little Venice Island, along the San Joaquin River northwest of Stockton, will host our 8-ball tournament on June 19, 2016, and provide free berthing to official 2016 Delta Doo Dah entries that evening.

Martinez Marina, a very affordable Delta destination with a convenient store, Martinez Yacht Club and restaurants nearby, is offering up to one week at 25% off to all official 2016 Delta Doo Dah entries (guests only), on a space-available basis. Call (925) 313-0942 to check availability, make a reservation, and verify depth (we recommend that fixed-keel boats enter and depart at high tide).

Owl Harbor Marina on the San Joaquin River offers our boats several free nights this year, including for their Movie Nights on June 4, July 2 and August 6; on June 18 for a free BBQ; and on August 12 with a free breakfast on August 13. For more details, see our Itinerary page. A map of the entrance and dock layout are available here. Reserve your space at (916) 777-6055. Plus, they'll donate a gift goodie bag for us to raffle off at RYC's Delta Seminar & Kickoff Party on May 21.

Stockton Sailing Club on the San Joaquin River will host Delta Doo Dah sailors in conjunction with the Delta Ditch Run on June 4-5 and invite DDD sailors to Hot Summer Nights on August 13. (See details on our Itinerary page.) SSC can arrange shuttle service to the grocery store or West Marine. "Stockton is a great place to start your DDD adventure," writes our friend at SSC, Tom Lueck. "After arriving you can pick up some local knowledge of places to go. It makes sense to start here and work your way back towards the Bay so that as your DDD vacation comes to an end you are only hours away from your home port." They offer official Delta Doo Dah entries three free nights in the harbor.
