Sailboat Show Comes to Alameda-Oakland Estuary


Strictly Sail Pacific, West Coast’s all-sailboat exhibit, is going on at Jack London Square through Sunday.

Lots of boats, yacht brokers and sailing enthusiasts from Alameda are crossing the estuary for the event, which is held annually in Oakland.

This year, the America’s Cup trophy made a guest appearance, along with several organizers and representatives of various committees and groups working on the America’s Cup.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there will seminars on nautical topics like navigation, meteorology, racing and cruising. There are also trips on the water for kids and adults, along with other hands-on demonstrations.

Parking can be tough during the event. So consider taking the bus, or getting there by bike, kayak or other means.

    A little digging would have brought some questions to us here in the city of Desert Hot Springs about mutually former city manager Ann Marie Gallant. How do these city manager people keep getting $250,000 jobs with no one doing any back ground checks? As the only local paper serving Desert Hot Springs http://www.desertvalleystar.com is reaching out to ask.
