This event has been one of our favorite ‘long cruises’ where we transit up to Oceanside and are guests of the U.S. Marines in their exclusive anchorage called Del Mar Basin. This year we may be joined by members of the Tennis Fleet as we welcome them to anchor with us. This is a great opportunity to make more friendships within the Club and visit with other boaters at SDYC. Our Cruise Captains will be Janette & Lance Murphy and Larki & Jim Cook, so you know we’ll have lots of fun. We’ll be using our paddle boards in the basin and also have a chance to walk the exclusive beaches of Camp Pendleton.
The anchorage opens at noon and we would like all boats to arrive by 4 pm. At 5pm on Friday we'll dinghy to and dine at the Oceanside Yacht Club. They have a very friendly bar with a great view of the marina. Everyone is 'pay as you go' for cocktails and dinner.
On Saturday afternoon we will take a stroll along the private beach of Camp Pendleton to have a late lunch at Ramone's Beach Cantina. It's become our new favorite and everyone is again 'pay as you go'. After lunch we'll hold a Domino's tournament in the beachside Cabana's out front of Ramone's.
All the events are also open to non-boaters, so please feel welcome to drive to Oceanside and join us in relaxing Del Mar Basin or at any of the activities. There are some ‘special procedures’ for boaters on this trip, so please sign up early. If you are driving, special instructions are also required and they will be forwarded prior to the trip.
