Jamaica Bay Inn
4175 Admiralty Way
Marina del Rey, CA 90292

The Southern California Fleet is looking forward to hosting the international Change of Watch in January of 2018. The weekend will be held at the Jamaica Bay Inn in Marina del Rey (which is approximately five miles north of the Los Angeles Airport).

To make reservations at the Jamaica Bay Inn, call them direct at 310-823-5333 and ask for the Classic Yacht Association group.

Besides our important board meetings, we have planned several outings and dinners. The welcome cocktail party will be held aboard the 105’ 1929 classic yacht, SOBRE LAS OLAS. In addition, a classic yacht harbor cruise is planned for Saturday afternoon, as well as our traditional Change of Watch Banquet.

We will be hosting a Friday bus trip to the Reagan Presidential Library to see decades of archived treasures and where you will go onboard the 707 Air Force One that ferried 7 Presidents all over the world. After lunch at the Reagan Library, we go on to the Nethercutt Museum which Autoweek Magazine says is one of the five greatest auto museums in America.

We hope you will all plan to attend and enjoy our typical nice WARM winter weather. See you there.
Safe Boating,

Commodore Rick Olson

Hi everyone.

We here in Southern California are ready to welcome you to sunny Marina del Rey. A bit of rain is scheduled the next couple of day to wash everything off to sparkle!!

When you arrive on either Thursday or Friday, our SC members will be at the Jamaica Bay Inn to welcome you and present your goodie bags. We'll be a short distance from the lobby, just outside of the Beachside restaurant, each day from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm. The hotel front desk will have any left after that. Please let me know if you need other arrangements.

On Thursday night, we've planned a casual get together for dinner at SALT (at the Marina del Rey Hotel) about 6:30. We'll need to make reservations, so please let me know by Wednesday evening if you'd like to do so.

For those going to the Reagan Library, etc., Friday morning we'll be meeting in front of JBI at 8:15 to board our bus. Returning about 5 pm.

The Friday night welcome party aboard Sobre las Olas is from 6:30 to 8:30. We'll have either a small shuttle or private cars from JBI to Sobre - a short 5 minute drive - starting at 6:30. For those of you driving, there is parking available. [Call me if you need directions . . .]

We're anxious to see you all in just a few short day.

Any questions or for other information, call Christine Rohde at 310 429-3028; Rick Olson at 626 253-2302; or Cris Clark at 310 703-7320.

Safe travels,
Cris Rohde
