We are excited to once again offer our annual Delta cruise. We've got some great destinations and fun on tap and would love to have you come and join us for all or part of TYC's 8 day cruise. Most locations will have clean restrooms and showers, outdoor fun and games, picnic & BBQ areas, and nearby Delta-style dining.
In order to make our cruise more enjoyable for TYC's sailors, we have added a second night at Benicia! Cruise on up with the tide Saturday morning and join us Saturday afternoon as we enjoy all that Benicia has to offer. There is plenty of deep water all the way and in the marina, so why not make it a fun getaway weekend!
We appreciate your patience as we continue to tweak the schedule and venues a bit due to some COVID-related hiccups and challenges.
This year's cruise will visit:
- Benicia YC and Marina - Friday July 23 - Saturday July 24
A beautiful town to visit on our way up to the Delta. We'll stop in to the friendly Benicia Yacht Club Friday night, and can walk into the lovely town for a wide choice of food options. Restrooms, showers, fuel available.
Dock Fee is $1.25/foot/night but we'll be receiving a yacht club cruise-in discounted rate of $27/night.
