The Berkeley Yacht Club recognizes and honors its long-term members at the annual "Old Salts" dinner. At 25 years of membership, a member is deemed an "Old Salt", and the member receives a special burgee and a special name tag. Subsequently, the member is again recognized for continued membership in five year increments (i.e. 30, 35, 40, etc. years). Currently, Larry and Billee Telford are our most senior Old Salt members and still racing Antares their Islander 30 in the Berkeley Midwinter races. They have been a member since 1966.

Please allow me to introduce you to Kathleen Gadway, Berkeley Yacht Club's October-November Artist-in-Residence.
Ms Gadway's recent works are observational paintings, exploring light and color using the color spot method. These pieces are painted in oil or gouache, en plein air and in the studio. She states that she "paints to immerse herself in the world and respond to all its beauty. When all goes well this can be a time of painting without thinking, when light, color, and the brush, take over".
Oktoberfest and Corporation Dinner Meeting on the second Saturday in October. Bratwurst, Bockwurst, Chicken Apple Sausage, Potato Salad, Sauerkraut and much more. $20.00 per person and $10.00 for Young Adults 12 years and under. Now is the time to RSVP - Please call 510-843-9292 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you soon,
Colin Thompson, Rear Commodore
