All of these events are followed by a social event.
Alameda Yacht Club is recognized for it”s great members. The Alameda Yacht Club was founded in 1985 and provides membership for both sail and power boats. The clubs goals are to promote recreational activities that will interest many of its members. Our Clubhouse offers the members and guests a comfortable and friendly meeting place for a variety of activities. There is a member operated full bar and a functional commercial galley.
he AYC clubhouse is located in Historic Fortman Marina, once home to the Alaska Packers Fishing Company in the early 1900”s. The name says it all. When you cruise, you”re not on a clock and it”s not a race. You”re just on the water, taking your time. Cruising boats come in all sizes, generally starting in the 20-foot range (with a couple bunks and a mini-galley), and reaching up to 50 feet or more, with staterooms, bathrooms, hot and cold running water, and gourmet galleys.
Cruisers offer enough space for a weekend or several weeks on the water. For some, cruising becomes a way of life. You can start with a small boat and explore bays and islands a few miles from home. As your navigating and sailing skills grow, you can spend extended periods of time on the water a few weeks of vacation or even for entire seasons.
