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, 2021 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.

    Let's cruise to Petaluma!

    Come join the fun with TYC Friday, September 24th - September 26th, as we cruise up the beautiful (and recently dredged) Petaluma River to downtown Petaluma! Yes, you did hear me say that the long-neglected Petaluma River, entry channel and turning basin were dredged to 8 feet depth below MLLW in a 100' wide channel. So if you are a sailor with a keel that can handle 8' now would be the time to come along with the power fleet to explore the interesting antique shops, intriguing boutiques, tasty restaurants, and mmm-licious wine and beer houses that make Petaluma one of the most cruised-to destinations on the Bay. Sign up here.

    As usual, we'll plan to leave the Cay mid-morning to catch the flood at Petaluma River Entrance which runs from 9:49a to 3:48p. This should help us avoid the wind against ebb which can cause rough going in the shallows around the approach channel. Most important is to schedule our D St. Bridge opening- well in advance - as the bridge is not manned all day long. More details as we get closer.

     As for fun, here's a sneak-peek for how we'll spend the weekend...we're working to make sure we have safe, outside-dining choices. More details before we leave on the 24th. 

    Friday, Sept. 24th        Cruise to Petaluma Turning Basin (Downtown Petaluma)

    Sunday, Sept. 26th      Breakfast on your own
