Event Information


The OYRA/YRA annual event-cruiser's practice ralley. Part I - Cross the line in and around 0940 from near the Golden Gate Bridge. Sail to Drakes Bay (35 miles from the Golden Gate). Stay aboard for the night at Anchor. Part II Sail back to the Bay. The cruiser's rally is fun practice for offshore sailors considering going to points south till the butter melts. Very good way for ASA 106 folks getting ready for that course or practicing after finishing ASA 106. Can be adventurous but normally the sea at this time of year is mellow. This sail is one to make lasting memories.

Expect will include spinnaker use on the way back. Suggest getting an evening or 2 of spinnaker training before going to the ocean to try setting, gybing and dousing a really big kite. Confidence and knowledge make it more fun. Allows being able to anticipate problems and resolve before it can happen.
