April 6, 2019 – Opening Day Photo Album

PBYC members enjoyed participating in the “Time Honored Tradition” of blue and white attire…and the “Traditional Painkillers” that PBYC is famous for amongst Southern California Yacht Clubs served on Opening Day.

A huge thank you to Club Photographer, Mark Rossman! View all of his fabulous photos in the 2019 PBYC Opening Day photo album.

“A Time Honored Tradition…”

It’s that time of year again when we declare the harbor free of ice and cruising season begins!

Opening Day is a long standing tradition in all yacht clubs, stemming from the re-opening of the yachting season after having been closed for the winter. In California, we are lucky to be able to stay open all year. However, we are a yacht club and as part of the Southern California Yachting Association, we follow the tradition of hosting an Opening Day. This is also a time for us to be proud to share our Club with visitors from other yacht clubs.

The traditional attire is a blazer jacket of a solid dark blue color with a “Bullion” placed 1 inch below the top of the left breast pocket or where one would be. Trousers, shorts, dress or skirt should be white or khaki.
