Fleet members have been/will be emailed a a link and coupon code to make their reservation for a beth.

Owl Harbor Marina on the San Joaquin River invites Delta Doo Dah sailors to join the marina tenants for Dinghy Poker Run & BBQ on July 31. See our Itinerary page for details. A map of the entrance and dock layout are available here. Reserve a slip at (916) 777-6055.

Richmond Yacht Club has invited our fleet to their 4th of July Dinghy Parade in Bedrooms 1 and 2 on July 4.

Stockton Sailing Club on the San Joaquin River plans to host Delta Doo Dah sailors as part of the Delta Ditch Run on June 12. The club also offers 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." Call (209) 951-5600 to reserve a slip.

Prizes & Swag

The California Delta Chambers & Visitor's Bureau has donated a hard cover copy of Hal Schell's Guide to Cruising California's Delta, the Delta Dawdler's Dream Tour of This Fabulous 1,000-Mile Waterway.

This is a used book in excellent condition, shrinkwrapped for protection.

Pat and Carole McIntosh of Cruising Notes will provide free digital downloads of Things to Know Before You Go, tenth edition, to all our fleet members.

Owl Harbor will donate a gift certificate for one night's free stay in the marina and one of their fabulous gift bags for the raffle prize drawing.
