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.

    Have you thought about overnight cruising your boat, but never got around to it? This easy cruise is designed for you. Experienced cruisers and land cruisers will enjoy it too!

    Cruise seven calm miles into the San Rafael Canal, past stately homes, to the friendly San Rafael Yacht Club, which has a huge guest dock with shorepower and no docking fees.

    Several restaurants are within a mile, and so are a Whole Foods and a KFC in case you forget to pack some provisions. A playground is a short walk away, next to Terrapin Crossroads restaurant. 

    SRYC will provide Saturday night dinner - your choice of chicken or steak, which you grill, along with salad, side dishes and dessert, for $18; kids under 12 $5.  Bar opens at 5 pm; bringing an hors d'oeuvre is optional and SRYC will have some too.  Dinner served at 6:30. 

    Sunday brunch will be at noon at Terrapin Crossroads, with live music. Again, drive-ins are welcome but you must RSVP.

    This is a perfect one night cruise for first-timers. Boats will leave Paradise Cay in a group Saturday at 1:00 pm, or come alone any time - even Friday for a two night stay. Non-cruisers are invited to drive in and support your cruising fleet.

    However you're coming, please RSVP if possible.

    The San Rafael Canal will have plenty of depth, with a low tide at nearby Pt. San Quentin around midday of 2.7' on Saturday and 2.8' on Sunday. Sailboats should consult the cruise leader and this chart of creek depths from 2017.
