Richmond Yacht Club will host our Delta Seminar & Kickoff Party, on Saturday, May 18, 6-9 p.m. Win door prizes! Learn from presenters and fellow cruisers! Share your own knowledge with other sailors! Bill Wells from the Delta Chambers plans to join us. More details to come.

Stockton Sailing Club on the San Joaquin River will host Delta Doo Dah sailors in conjunction with the Delta Ditch Run on June 1. 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."

Weather Routing Inc. will provide our fleet with complimentary forecasts on May 31-June 1 and August 15-18. They have also provided us with a complimentary weather widget for our home page.
