Any day of sailing is reason to celebrate, but particularly so for OCSC Member Cliff Roblee and his daughter Madie.  Madie recently celebrated her 15th birthday and Cliff came up with the idea to take the celebration to the Bay!

These girls just love to be together … anytime, anywhere!  For something a bit different than the usual sleepover, the bon amis got to spend a day on the Bay celebrating Madie’s 15th birthday.  After a picnic at Angel Island, the weather was perfect to venture across the slot, get splashed by waves, and dip bare toes in the cold water.  Each novice sailor took a turn at the helm, and quickly became comfortable in steering a steady course.  And yes, there was the sleepover … on the boat at OCSC!  Welcome aboard new sailors! – Cliff
