Apr. 30-May 1 – Vallejo Opener. This is the largest inland yacht
race in the area. It is a beautiful sight to see on the first day as
the colored spinnakers fill the Bay and string out all the way to
Vallejo. The second day, the slowest boats leave first as they all
race for the finish near the San Rafael Bridge. It’s a great day to
ride a ferry to Vallejo.
