February 2024 PICYA Update

The February 12 meeting of the Pacific Inter-Club Yachting Association was held at Marin Yacht Club, which has a beautiful clubhouse and grounds set well back from the main road on its own peninsula, with pickleball courts and a pool. It has a well decorated Main Dining Room and a well- appointed upstairs bar with a lovely view of the San Rafael Creek entrance. It was great to have Michael Proctor there also representing Berkeley Yacht Club.


Some future events may be held on weekend days in addition to the usual weeknights.New website coming soon via Clubspot.Openings available on PICYA committees.

Opening Day on the Bay 2024 theme is “Rockin’ on the Bay—Music and Memories”. Timing should be good for a slack tide for much of the day.
