Join us for Coastal Cleanup Day

It's not too early to start thinking about it!

Coastal Cleanup Day, Saturday, September 21st

Coastal Cleanup Day is a day to clean up our shores – a day to get rid of garbage, plastics, and other trash polluting and disfiguring our shores.

Coastal Cleanup is always on the third Saturday of September. It's not just an event at Ballena Bay. It's not just an event in California. It's not just an event in the USA – it's a world-wide event! So join fellow sailors and people who just love the sea and its shore from all around the world and help clean it up!

Coastal Cleanup at Ballena Bay will take place from 9AM to noon. A sign-in table will be set up in the “E” parking lot where participants will be assigned to a team (pre-formed teams from scouts or other organizations are encouraged) and directed to a specific area of the shoreline for them to help clean.

At the end of cleanup (typically around 11:30) “takes” will be judged and prizes awarded in various categories (most cigarette butts, heaviest object, most unusual item, etc).

So please mark the day on your calendar and join us in making Ballena Bay a clean, beautiful place where folks can enjoy our section of San Francisco Bay!

Visit our website (http://bbyc.org) for other events that you maybe interested in joining as well.

Check out our event on Saturday, Sep 21, 2019.

What is a Knarr (Knarrer, or is it Knarren plural)? Bermuda rigged, long keeled sailing yachts designed in 1943 by Norwegian Erling Kristofersen. They are 30' long with a beam of 6', racing with a crew of four. Sails only, no motor on the boats. There will be up to 8 boats racing this year, and they have a long racing tradition, mostly out of the Saint Francis Yacht Club on the Bay. BBYC is thrilled to host the Regatta, so come help cheer them on and support their racing tradition!

Stop in Friday night for one of our regular Griller Series nights to welcome the Regatta as they bring their boats into position for the Saturday race and come back Saturday to see it all happen! You are invited to pre-purchase a great Saturday dinner to hang with the racers as they share the excitement of the race and watch their videos--we have a great chef team coordinating this event--Virginia Gleason, Gina Secchi, and Kathryn Rees.

BBYC WiFi Network - Expect System Outtage

WiFi & Club Network Issues . . .

Today, Saturday 03AUG, our WiFi systems will be going on and off line as we attempt to repair a system issue that's been causing network congestion and outages all week. Expect periodic loss of coverage and connectivity throughout the day into the late evening as we attempt to isolate and repair these issues. This issue is caused by a user or users abusing the system, whether unintentionally because of a virus on their end OR in an attempt to connect more devices than their account allows for. Once isolated,the user and associated equipment will be automatically blocked from accessing our networks in the future. If it isn't you please don't be offended. We will figure it out and resolve the issue.

If you ever need technical support, have questions about getting an access point on your boat, or changing your plan speed, adding devices, etc, please reach-out to [email protected].

Now for some good news - Late next week (06AUG19), we are installing a new higher speed fiber optic back-haul to the internet. Our speeds will increase at the Club by a factor of 50! WiFi users, depending upon the quality of their connection to the Club's building, will also experience a potential massive speed increase with better reliability and faster uploads/downloads. On that day the system will be down for approximately two hours while the change-over to the new service is completed.
