Port Captain Musings
It’s been a jam-packed late summer and early fall with many of the Delta Yacht Clubs stopping by BBYC as part of their bay cruises; among them Sacramento Yacht Club, Benicia Yacht Club and others. The new “E-Dock” has sported racing sailboats during the Knarr Regatta, and multiple motor cruisers and tugs with their associated dock parties! October is packed with cruise-ins during the weekend of a BBYC Cruise-Out, so please reach out to us if you can volunteer to cook or man the bar.
