Last weekend hubby and I had a yacht club function in Rio Vista, California at Delta Marina Yacht Harbor. We exited our slip Thursday morning and made our way to Rio Vista. It’s a grueling 1.5 hours to get there. We got docked and hooked up with the commodore and her husband and enjoyed the afternoon on their boat. Then it started raining so we moved to our boat (a bit more room), and enjoyed more of the afternoon and a great dinner.
Friday brings many boats to the dock. That evening everyone went to The Point Restaurant for dinner. There might have been some alcohol being consumed on our boat after dinner. It’s a noisy and fun evening.
Saturday is the day the Coast Guard Auxiliary inspect our boats. Yes we passed and have a nice 2018 sticker on our boat that says our boat in in compliance with all equipment and safety regulations.
Next there are Hors d’oeuvres and a themed game or contest. This trip it was doggy costumes. The commodores dog won first place. Next is dinner and we had tons of food. We always do. After clean up and when it gets dark it’s movie night. Complete with popcorn and candy. A huge hit.
Sunday morning we head back to our marinas. We are tired, but it was a great time. The pictures below were taken by one of our club members (Jo T.) on our way back from our weekend.
The Three Mile Slough Bridge had to be opened so our five boats could leave the Sacramento River and enter Three Mile Slough.
This is our boat (Anewatee) and we’re right in front of the boat taking the pictures (Sporting Wood).
At the bottom of this photograph you can see our club burgee on the vessel Sporting Wood. Next is Anewatee, then Indolence, then Midlife Woody and in the lead is Our Destination. All of these boats are in two different marinas very close to each other.
I’m so very thankful that we are still healthy enough to enjoy this wonderful venue.
What are you thankful for today?
