Is Tug day still happening with the forecast predicted? Today has the same prediction as this Saturday and although there's rain clouds above my head now, it seems like it finally stopped raining around 4:30-5pm in Sonoma. How did San Francisco fair? Anyone with satellite knowledge want to throw in a prediction?

As far as I know it is still a go. I have heard nothing to the contrary, nor do I know of any contingency plans for moving the date of the event if it should be rained out.






In other word - Cross them fingers guys!

Would our PNW brothers and sisters quit because of a little rain? No!


Tug Fest is on, rain or shine. As Craig says, keep your fingers crossed!

Yesterday Weather Channel said it was not forecast to rain at all. It rained steady for about 4 hours (I tend to notice such things b/cause I ride a motorcycle). IE it is a total crapshoot. The company of folks such as as Aero and Capt. Lee always make the trip worth it regardless.

Just a reminder...

The SFMYC is not the only user of Spreckels Lake.

The Lake is a public lake and is open to all, you do NOT have to be a member of the SFMYC to sail any type of boat on Spreckels Lake, though the run times for gas-powered boats are limited by Rec and Park Department rules to between the hours of 10am through 1pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. More here and here

The SFMYC Sail Squadron has races scheduled for most Tuesday and Thursday afternoons as well as most Saturday and Sunday afternoons and have right-of-way.

On the power side, the most prolific users of the lake are the 'Irregulars,' a loose association of individual model electric and gas power boaters who run on the Lake on a nearly daily basis, and who are not associated with the SFMYC.

Hi Craig, I've been watching the weather here (in Sonoma) since about 6am just waiting for it to clear so I can get to my truck but it's been horrible. And I'm like a cat, hate to get wet. Battling a cold doesn't help that it's raining (or that there are high winds). I think it's safe to say I'm gonna save on gas and a bridge fair today. I hope it's mello enough over there to get a few runs in without the high seas claiming boats!!!

Keep us updated on what were missing! (

Dude! Youz missed a real fun, if somewhat soggy and cold event... Typical San Francisco summer weather !! I had really been looking forward to seeing your harbor setup!

More photos to come in a while, but in the meantime...

Listen, Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Pitter patter pitter patter, Oh
Listen, listen to the falling rain

Oh Man!!! That tanker is awesome. I knew I would miss some things but that was unexpected. However, judging from the rain, I wouldn't have been able to drop the tug in which would have been even more painful- my deck isn't rain water tight yet.

On the brighter side, since I was just sitting at home staring looking at my boat wondering what else I could modify, I decided to rip out the smoker box and make it better so that's where I'm at with that. A bunch of pieces lying around on a work bench.

I guess it was better than looking at my truck- that would have been nasty.

craig_c, how did you photoshop all of that rain into the Pacific Emanon picture? It wasn't really raining that hard... was it? (Yes, it was)

Depite the rain, we had a good number of boats and willing captains show up, some travelling from as far away as the Central Valley and Southern California to make the event happen! Even though we were all soggy, we had a great time and proved that our working boats work- even on rainy days!
