CYC Speaker Series ...For a Good
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
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
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.
