Treasure Island

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

We concluded an unexpectedly delightful holiday weekend at the Treasure Island Yacht Club, marked by unwarranted hospitality and endless offers of logistical support, and hamburgers. Never met a group working harder to have fun and entertain visiting sailors.


Ladies and gentlemen, I give you John; Treasure Island YC roving ambassador and recruitment specialist on his way through the anchorage.


Can’t avoid one more update on the Bay Bridge span replacement with a view from the USCG Vessel Traffic Service station on top of Yerba Buena Island. The new span was in place and the old span was slid out of the way, but they found a huge crack in the clevis of a tension member in the truss section that extended the closure by a day.
