  • A New Permanent Mark For Yellow Bluff Honoring Sailing Legend Hank Easom




    A surprise for local sailing legend, Hank Easom was unveiled recently at Brickyard Cove in Point Richmond a short time ago!








    A little piece of Bay sailing history was made with the unveiling of the new Hank Easom Yellow Bluff permanent buoy.




    1,000 lb bottom tackle will hold the buoy in position, combating the extremely strong currents along the Yellow Bluff shoreline.







    The creation of this buoy is the result of a collaboration between the Yacht Racing Association, the Coast Guard, and our members S/C Carl Lewis, Ron Young and Scott Easom.

    Funds were raised from individuals and participating yacht clubs (the San Francisco Yacht Club, the Corinthian Yacht Club, and the Sausalito Yacht Club) with assistance from the Belvedere Cove Foundation.

    Hank’s friends and crew surprised him with the event on Saturday morning. This meaningful gift in Hank’s honor will benefit all Bay Area sailors for many years.
