   Cruise to Ballena Isle
CRUISE TO BALLENA ISLE MARINA IN ALAMEDA September 20 – 22, 2019 CRUISE PLAN: Come join us for a “Cruiser’s Rally” and Alameda Tour on the weekend of September 20-22, 2019 at Ballena Isle Marina (Ballena Bay) in Alameda. It will be a great chance to practice some cruising skills like towing and being towed, and to enjoy giving our boats a little exercise. We will all be able to visit with each other dockside. For new cruisers, this is a great opportunity to visit with other cruising members and see how they have set up their boats for local cruising, like an “open house” for cruisers. Don’t have a boat to bring? You can always call and arrange to go out with us on another member’s boat or drive in to join the shore side activities.
