Labor Day Cruise –

San Francisco Bay – Monterey – Santa Cruz & Half Moon Bay 2015

September 3rd – September 7th

Come join us as we head down to Monterey “flotilla style” with a group of about 10 boats from Club Nautique as well as members on their own boats.

We have historically done this trip on Memorial Day but because of a race to Monterey that weekend that happens every year, we haven’t been able to get slips in Monterey. Now we have slips for everyone to be able to enjoy Monterey together!

Coastal Passage Making Graduates charter your own boat and join in the fun! We’ll start a crew list and get boats organized if you want to skipper and a don’t have crew.

You won’t want to miss it!
