20th Annual PICYA Margo Brown Wheel Chair Regatta will be held September 24, 2016 at Encinal Yacht Club. This event will once again provide veterans, many confined to wheelchairs, with the rare opportunity to experience a power boat cruise on the Oakland Estuary and San Francisco Bay along the San Francisco City front. On their return, our guests will be treated to a picnic luncheon and entertainment on the grounds of Encinal Yacht Club. Most of our honored guests are U.S. Veterans residing in Northern California Veterans’ Homes and Hospitals.
Fall PICYA Management Conference is being held at the Loch Lomond Yacht Club on Saturday October 15th. We will have a representative from US Coast Guard San Francisco with an interesting discussion on how we can work together in case of a large scale emergency and many other interesting presentations. Also Loch Lomond YC is planning on hosting an all club cruise-in so folks can bring their boats on that Friday into their newly-dredged marina and stay for the conference and then cruise out on Sunday.
