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.

Upcoming Cruises

    • 10/13/2023
    • 10/15/2023
    • Tinsley Island

    It comes but once a year - the opportunity to visit fabled Tinsley Island even if you're not a St. Francis YC member.

    (And if you are a member of St Francis YC,  you still need to sign up with TYC or another of the eight cruise clubs.)


    • Cruise fee: $30 per person, paid to TYC when you register.
    • St. Francis YC fees, paid to the cruise organizer later in the process.
      • St. Francis Club Fee: $65 per adult; $27.50 per child
      • Docking Fee (if boating in): $145/night (Fri+Sat), $72.50 each other night
      • Island Visitor Fee: $35 per person per day; docking fee covers the first 2 people
    • All fees are refundable if you cancel, except the St. Francis Club Fee which becomes non-refundable if canceled less than 7 days before event.

    Registration process:

    • Reserve your spot with TYC by clicking the Register button, completing the form and paying the $30 per person cruise fee.
    • Then go to the Tinsley Island Friendship Cruise registration form and complete it. Your registration is not complete until you have done both. 
    • You will receive more information from the Cruise Director, who is not a TYC person.

    If all our spots are taken, you can get on the TYC waitlist. But you still have to fill out both registration forms, ours and theirs.

    We look forward to seeing you on fabulous Tinsley Island.
