Speaker Series

CYC Speaker Series ...For a Good Yarn..  

Sailors, like fishermen, can tell stories, and when they aren't on the water, they are talking or listening to stories about being on the water. One could say "sailors are a curious bunch."   The CYC Speaker Series baits that curiosity. We have listened to thrilling adventures, nerdy gear-based discussions, lively debates, and together we have dreamed and schemed while hearing about places we can barely find on a map.   Speakers are often, but not always, scheduled the first Thursday of each month; to see upcoming speakers check the calendar.

The CYC Speaker Series is free and open to the public. Speakers start at 7 pm and the Sail Loft Bar opens at 6:15 pm.  

Just some of the speakers we have enjoyed are: ·        
Taylor Allen, owner of  woodenboat mecca Rockport Marine in Maine ·        
Lia Ditton, training to row solo Japan to SF in 2018 ·        
Life on the Water presenting portraits in film ·        
Phil Cassou & Phil Maslin, Tiburon Railroad & Ferry Depot Museum ·        
Julian Guthrie, Norm Bajurin on The Billionaire and the Mechanic ·        
Richard Spindler, founder of Latitude 38 ·        
Bruce Schwab & Rich Wilson, twice single-handed non-stop race around the world ·        
Dawn Riley, sailed in 1992 America's Cup, author of Taking the Helm        
Erden Eruc, 2014 Guinness World Record for rowing circumnavigation    
Hank Easom, beloved SF Bay sailor        
Jimmy Cornell, authority on long distance sailing·        
Mark Rudiger, legendary navigator in TransPac and round the world races         
Pat Henry, single-handed woman sailor       
Paul Cayard, professional sailor  

Our venue is one of the most desirable on the San Francisco Bay. Our 100-year-old ballroom with grand stone fireplace has an excellent screen/sound system.  The adjoining sun porch and bar open to a deck with incomparable views of the San Francisco skyline, Angel Island and the San Francisco Bay.   For any type of inquiry about the Speakers Series, contact speakers@cyc.org.
