Memorial Day Cruise to Angel Island
What gets a bunch of sailors out of bed before 8am on a weekend? The annual cruise to angel Island of course! 30 CSC members and guests poured into Commanders and Merits for a gorgeous sail to the aptly named Island, for a sizable feast that would make your grandmother proud.
Creaking at the seams, some of us chose to hike off the calories, others napped, and many took the short hike/quick nap combo that capitalized on the best of both worlds.
The sail back was mostly uneventful, with half of of us sailing down Raccoon straits, around the Island and into Berkeley, and the other half taking a straight shot back to Berkeley. It was scorching in the wind shadow of Angel Island, but cooled off nicely with a 5knt breeze as we cruised into the Berkeley Marina.
Big thanks to Jennifer Kroon, Allan Champion, Clement Barthes, Onur Filiz, and Kevin Rendueles for skippering and Jennifer for organizing the whole cruise.
