The 34th America's Cup is coming to the Bay Area. Yet less than 12% of us have actually been sailing on the Bay. As future Cup hosts, we owe it to ourselves to have at least minimal knowledge and experience about this exciting extreme pastime as well as our local environs. Whether you're a novice, or have actually spent time 3 sheets to the wind at sea, there's lots to learn and enjoy.
Join fellow Yalies and Ivy alumni of all ages, and their families, for a “Day on the Bay” which will have something for everyone — a lecture, BBQ, sailing, kite flying, volleyball, and even a jumpy house for the kids (and inspired alumni).
Kick back with an entertaining and educational lecture by OCSC founder and president, Anthony Sandberg (Dartmouth '71) on "Secrets of the San Francisco Bay", where answers to some of the following will be revealed:
What's the average depth of the Bay? (The answer may shock you)
Did Capt. Morgan officially serve in any Navy?
- Does anyone remember the Salty Dog Rag?
What's the difference between “yar” and “yawl” and “ya’ll”?
Why did the Army Corp of Engineer's proposed filling in the Bay in the 1950's?
- If someone yells "Jibe Ho" at my wife, should I take offense?
- Hamburgers, Cheese Burgers, & Veggie Burgers
- Hot Dogs
- Fixin's (Ketchup, Mustards, May, Pickles, Onions, Relish, Tomatoes, & Lettuce)
- Sodas, Juices, Lemonade, and Waters
- Potato Salad
- Baked Beans
- Chips & Salsa
Attendees interested in some sailing will be pleased to know that time on the water is available. Skippered, 6-person boats will be available for $20 per person per hour. (Tickets must be purchased in advance.)
This picnic is for parents, couples, families, and all alumni of Yale. The event is organized by Dartmouth and co-hosted and attended by various Ivy alumni organizations, including the Yale Clubs of San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
RSVP REQUIRED: To aid in the planning of this event, please purchase tickets by Monday, June 11th.
