Old Salts Dinner

Saturday, May 17, 2014 1800 cocktails/1900 dinner

The Berkeley Yacht Club recognizes and honors its long time members at the annual "Old Salts" dinner.  At 25 years of membership, a member is deemed an "Old Salt", and the member is our guest for the dinner and receives "the gold watch" of BYC, a special burgee and name tag.  Subsequently, members are again recognized for continued membership in five year increments.  They have wonderful stories to share.  We are planning a wonderful dinner so make your reservations by May 14th.  Don't miss this very special evening.

Friday night racing is back!

Friday night racing has started up for the season at BYC, and almost magically, summer winds have kicked in for the first races.

Known traditionally as Beercan Races, these are a great way to get familiar with racing sailboats on San Francisco Bay, and to put the work-week behind you. The barbecue after the race is a time to compare experiences on the water, or off.

See the Friday Night Racing page for details.
