Welcome to the California Cruising Clippers (CCC). Our club’s main focus is the monthly cruise activities and combination dinner and club business meetings. The key activities are the cruises that are mainly in the San Francisco Bay and Delta area with a few cruises along the central California coast. The club has evolved a great deal since 1974 from all Clipper Marine 26 foot sloops to a wide variety of larger boats. The members’ boats are mostly sailboats in the 33 to 44 foot range; a few members have moved on to power boats and continue to participate in the cruises and club activities.
The CCC has been a member of Pacific Inter-Club Yachting Association (PICYA) for 27 years and it is a great way for us to interact with the greater boating club community in the area. The San Francisco Bay and Delta area is very large and represents the full range of where our members live. We are fortunate to have a long and excellent relationship with the Oakland Yacht Club who graciously hosts our monthly dinner meetings.
We are a small club with members who are very active with their boats and who have a wide range of experience, many with great depth. All members are strongly encouraged to lead cruises and club activities. The club has always emphasized an informal atmosphere and keeping things simple where the members can enjoy their boats with the camaraderie of the other members. We have evolved with our boats and newer technology in general, but continue to emphasize the traits that have led to our past success. The core philosophies of safety and having fun on the water with a group of like-minded friends will continue to guide our club. We hope to see you out on the Bay!
