Last Day for Strictly Sail Pacific


Sailors and non-sailors alike should head across the Alameda-Oakland Estuary for the last day of Strictly Sail Pacific, the 19th annual sailboat-only show at Jack London Square in Oakland. The show is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 13.

Many Alameda yacht clubs, sailing schools and boat brokers are on hand, along with their counterparts from all over the United States.

Lots of new yachts can be toured, including plenty of models brought up from Southern California.

In addition, there are bargains on sailing equipment, attire and gifts to be found, as well as sailing demonstrations and lectures on topics like anchoring, sail trim, communications equipment, gear failure, cruising the California coast, sailing to Mexico and more.

The Farmers’ Market at Jack London square will be open until 2 p.m. on Sunday, so plenty of edible treats are on hand, as well.
