2018 Hosts, Deals, Prizes & Swag

Hosts & Deals

Bay View Boat Club will host Delta Doo Dah sailors at their Bradford Island site on August 11-12. See our itinerary page for more details.

Owl Harbor Marina on the San Joaquin River will host a BBQ on June 16 for Delta Doo Dah sailors and marina tenants. See details on our Itinerary page. Also, Owl Harbor offers one free night to registered DDD participants with a minimum two-night stay. A map of the entrance and dock layout are available here. Reserve a slip at (916) 777-6055.

Richmond Yacht Club hosted our Opening Act, a Delta Seminar & Kickoff Party, now scheduled for Saturday, May 12, 6-9 p.m. They supplied some excellent appetizers. See our itinerary page for details.

Stockton Sailing Club on the San Joaquin River will host Delta Doo Dah sailors in conjunction with the Delta Ditch Run on June 2. (See details on our Itinerary page; more to come.) Delta Doo Dah boats that enter the Cruising Division are welcome to stick around at SSC for two weeks free of charge. They also offer all official Delta Doo Dah entries three free nights in the harbor anytime during the year. 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 toward the Bay so that as your DDD vacation comes to an end you are only hours away from your home port."

Prizes & Swag

BugBand has supplied us with DEET-free mosquito repellent products to raffle off as a door prizes: a set of four insect repellent bands, a portable diffuser, two bottle of spray lotion, a box of towlettes, and some tow-towlette sample packs. We'll include these in a round of door prizes at Stockton Sailing Club on Sunday, June 3.

The California Delta Chambers & Visitor's Bureau will provide our fleet with copies of their booklet, Come Enjoy the California Delta, at the Kickoff Party. They've also sent us some prizes to raffle off: four California Delta shirts and four tickets to the Taste of the Delta event on August 4.

Owl Harbor has sent us a stylish turquoise canvas tote bag filled with equally stylish prizes to raffle off in our door prize drawing at the Kickoff Party on May 12.
