Owl Harbor Marina on the San Joaquin River invites Delta Doo Dah sailors to join the marina tenants for their 10-year anniversary celebration on the weekend of August 16-18. See our Itinerary page for details; RSVP by July 21 is required. Also, Owl Harbor offers one free night to registered DDD participants with a minimum two-night stay (may not use for 10-Year Anniversary Weekend, August 16-18). A map of the entrance and dock layout are available here. Reserve a slip at (916) 777-6055.

Pittsburg Marina invites Delta Doo Dah sailors to a complimentary wine and beer tasting at its First Fridays Wine & Art summer series ($10 value). In addition to the live music, art show, scenic waterfront and family-friendly atmosphere, wine and beer will be provided by locals Wedl Winery and Romeo Vineyards, and Pittsburg’s E.J. Phair Brewery. Bring lounge chairs or blankets on the first Friday of each month, June-September, 5:30-9 p.m.

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."

We've sent a 2 for 1 coupon for drinks at Tiki Lagoon on Turner Cut to our fleet.

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.
