I hope Jim can make it - it would be nice to see him.

We have a room at the Holiday Inn on J st. so we are close to Discovery park
Bruce, our Bell Boy rides like an older vintage fiberglass boat. The Hardtop gives her that distinguished look. I’m sure your Hydroswift is a more comfortable ride with her deeper V bottom.

Though cool in the morning, high tomorrow is 64 and mostly sunny. May consider taking Sweet Isabel.

Default Thanks Eduardo and Mercedes

Well, it was a nice sunny day after all and we had fun. The luncheon was great though a bit bittersweet knowing this would be the last one. Dan Walters was a good host and we all enjoyed his company and his stories. Jim Barker did a tribute to Dan and presented him with a banner from the old Fiberglassics group.
We cruised a ways down the SAC to get some run time on our boats. A good way to start the new year.

Default Another amazing day...

for the 2018 New Years Day Run and brunch at the Sacramento Yacht Club for the GSG. Started out at 9:30 with Kent and Lydia and Mercedes and me meeting up at Discovery Park. The weather was so nice, unseasonably warm for this time of the year and no wind. Mercedes setup her small table of hot beverages and morning snacks, and slowly members showed up. After picking up his ‘59 Larson Thunderhawk from our local Plastics Guy, Brett Bartlett and his team, Don drove up with his entire family of 4 from Concord. He now has a brand new windshield on his old boat. Then came Jerry and Lucia from San Jose with their ‘60 Glasspar Sunliner. Bruce and Dana drove up from Redding, Brad Slish cruised in from a marina just north of the park with his ‘64-65 Alumacraft 18’ i/o. Locals Glenn and Lan in their ‘62 Trailorboat Savoy, and last was Bill Davis from Rohnert Park in his super nice and clean original condition ‘58 Glasspar Sport Lido. Bruce and Dana rode with Mercedes and me in our ’59 Bell Boy Hardtop 265. Even with two members with boats, who originally planned on coming, couldn’t make it (sick) and one other boat (mechanical), we had 7 boats yesterday, a nice turnout.

Default Heading to the Sacramento Yacht Club...

...to meet Dan and the rest of the members. We left the launch at 11 am and arrived at the SYC just before 11:30. Dan was waiting on the dock guiding us to where we can tie our boats. The marina was full; economy must be good. We met my mom and dad there as well as Jim, my cousin Gemmel, and Dave. Dan hosted 23 of us and after a delicious and festive brunch and drinks, we honored Dan, who had hosted this annual gathering for at least 13+ years, with a banner made in 2003 of the first years of the Classic Fiberglass boat hobby. It was a gift from Jim Barker on behalf of GSG. We are very grateful for Dan Walters. After lunch we all went outside and just hung out with Dan. As we were on the upper crosswalk bridge looking north along the marina and the Sacramento River and our old boats just below, he told me that his year must be the best weather and conditions we have ever had, fitting for the last luncheon at SYC.

Default New Year's Day run...

...on the Sacramento. At 1:30 we all got in our boats and headed south towards Clarksburg. Mercedes rode with Bill, Bruce and Dana stayed with me, and Brad and his party headed back north. Other than three marinas, it was a quick 9.5 miles down from SYC until we turned around at Cliff’s Marina just south of Freeport. On our return, it was even a faster 14.5 mile cruise. No issues on the water other than Bill having to fill up his tank with fuel. Even while he was taking care of that, we all huddled around Kent and Glenn’s boat with motors turned off and drifting along with the current. Water conditions were so perfect, with barely any debris on the water. What a blast to cruise on water like this.

Default The end of our New Year's Day tradition

We got back to the launch and by the time we all got our boats back on trailers and wiped down, we chatted a little more, and said our goodbyes.

What an incredibly fun day we had. Thank you to all who came, especially traveling from afar. It was nice to see everyone again, especially Jim and Gemmel, not having seen them in a while. Glassparnut Bill Davis too. Never fails, we enjoy being around with family, friends, and this community. Very glad we made this last New Year’s Day Run and lunch with Dan happen one last time. Until we meet again on the water.

Hope you enjoyed the story and the pictures.

Eduardo and Mercedes

Jerry, we are so glad you made it up with Lucia and with your old boat on this New Year's Day. With the weather and water conditions as they were, we could have easily cruised another 15+ miles easily. Never gets old when it's like this. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

Looks like a great turnout for this last SYC annual run. Good to see Jim Barker made this one

Thanks Jr. and Eduardo for capturing the event, looks like another wonderful day on the delta, sorry to have missed it.
Love Kent's yellow missile looking hot rod and Nut's cute Lido, all the rest are beautiful as well just haven't seen these two before.
Nice to see Jim participate since he was MIA all of last year, need to get one of your fleet running.

Thanks for sharing the pictures and stories of the New Year's Day run. The two of you did it again. We were lucky enough to meet and talk with Dan Walters at the ice cream shop two years ago on the April Delta run. We would have enjoyed this one, but we were in Big Bear for 6 days over New Years. Summer like weather 72 to 74 degrees and NO SNOW.
We are looking forward for the Delta run in April.
