Wednesday Yachting Luncheons
The Wednesday Yachting Luncheons continue a 51-year tradition of relevant topics, friendly fun, and good food in a relaxed, informal setting.
The buffet lunch service begins at 11:45am. The program begins at 12:30pm sharp. Presentations and Q&A usually wrap up by 1:30pm and guest speakers often linger for conversation with our knowledgeable audience. All members of recognized yacht clubs are welcome at the Wednesday Yachting Luncheon. First-time guests are asked to please visit our Front Desk for a guest card and a smile. We hope you enjoy our luncheon fare, fabulous view and sailor’s hospitality.
Do you have a great idea for a guest speaker? Please contact Wednesday Yachting Luncheon chairman Ron Young at Ron@RonaldYoung.com

Michael Boland, Chief of Park Development & Operations, The Presidio Trust
The Presidio was founded in 1776 as a military base to defend San Francisco. Founded in 1997, the Presidio Trust has transformed the base into America's first financially self-sufficient national park site. The 1,500-acre park is a major outdoor recreation hub with miles of trails, a golf course, overlooks, beaches, the Civil War–era Fort Point, the Walt Disney Family Museum, eateries, homes and businesses. Michael manages the planning, capital projects, stewardship, sustainability, transportation and park operations. He is focused on managing multiple interdisciplinary teams to create relevant contemporary park programming, while modeling 21st century sustainable stewardship practices in urban parklands.
