Every month TYC sail and power boats head out for San Francisco Bay Area destinations in an organized club cruise. Locations range from nearby yacht clubs to a week in the Delta. All in all, 2016 looks to be another exciting year for TYC cruising.

The weekend cruises often head to more distant locations like Benicia, Petaluma, or up the Napa River or Suisun Slough.  Our annual Summer Cruise finds TYC members enjoying the warmer weather and water of the Delta for seven or eight relaxing days away from the usual crush of boats on the bay.

To get involved just pick a trip (or two) and click "Register" at the right.

The essence of TYC cruising is to have fun and enjoy the friendship of fellow boaters. Some yacht clubs we'll visit will host dinners for us and sometimes we organize pot-luck and restaurant events. Whatever the plan, be prepared for a good time and lots of new adventures!

Although most TYC cruisers take their own boat, some members choose to buddy boat or crew on a more experienced boat in the beginning, and there are always some "land cruisers" who drive their rubber tired craft to join in the fun.  However you arrive, we'll guarantee you'll have fun.

Upcoming Cruises

    • 07/10/2017
    • 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM
    • Angel Is.

    All TYC members, with or without a boat, are welcome (space permitting) to cruise to Angel Island for lunch and island activities.

    This time we're going on a weekday to avoid the summer crowds.  (We'll do more of these, so if you'd prefer a different schedule or destination email and let us know what works for you.)

    No boat? No problem. Sign up as a passenger, and we'll match you up with a skipper who volunteers to take members.

    Monday mah-jongg players are welcome.  We'll bring a set along and find a shady table.

    Dock space can be limited mid-day, so we'll leave the Cay around 10:30 am.

    For lunch, the cafe at Ayala Cove serves a pretty good selection, or bring a picnic lunch if you prefer.

    Afterwards, see the visitor center near the docks, take a tram tour around the island, play mah jongg, or hike the perimeter road, or up to the top for a 360 degree view.

    Register now so we have plenty of time to pair up passengers and skippers.

    (Activities subject to return time arranged with your skipper.)

    • Delta YC, 1 Tule Island, Stockton, CA 95219

    TYC's annual getaway to kick back and relax upriver in the San Joaquin Delta. 

       From July 24 - 28 our fleet will join Petaluma YC and Oxbow YC at the lovely Delta Yacht Club, one notch (OK, one island) above Tinsley.

       Plans for the cruise up and back are open, but suggestions are welcome.  There will likely be stops at fine docking and dining ports like Benicia, Martinez, Pittsburg, etc.

       Currents for the trip up look favorable, with the chance to ride the flood up on the weekend of the 22nd.  Next weekend it will be flooding early in the Delta and ebbing until mid-afternoon on the bays.

       Delta YC is a mini-resort, with a pool, pitch and putt golf course, outdoor barbecues, indoor galley and dining, large screen TV, board and table games, crawdad fishing and eating, lots of island for walking around, and plentiful docking for side ties for everyone.
