About the event

Opening Day on the Bay @ BYC has a little something for everyone this year!

  • 0800-1100 - Waffle Breakfast presented by Steve Crawford and John Danielson.  $10 for adults, $5 for non-adults.  RSVPs greatly appreciated but not required.
  • 1100-1200 - If the fates align, we'll have a bit of an inspection by our esteemed Commodore.  Commodore's inspections are typically inspections of the fleet's vessels in a floating parade format.  But we'll be rolling Berkeley-style, which means our fearless leader will inspect the clubhouse instead of our boats and she'll do so from the water, which allows us to inspect her boat.
  • 1200-1300 - Does your vessel have bad juju from an aftermarket name-change?  Do you seek the approval of the gods that can only come from someone else beseaching their blessings on your behalf?  Just wanna crack a bottle of champers over your boat's bow like they do in the movies?  RSVP for a rechristening ceremony by 4/22 and the club will provide a specially designated person to holler at the gods for you as well as a bottle of West Marine's finest to crack open as an offering to Neptune (or Poseidon... whichever).
