Delta Cruise 2017

B&W Resort, Isleton CA – October 6th to October 8th


Who can resist the allure of peaceful, winding Delta waterways, watching all manner of waterfowl in their native habitat and enjoying warm, evening sunsets with the many hues of pink, orange and gold. The San Joaquin Delta has literally thousands of miles to explore and the opportunity to experience this magical area is right around the corner!

The Northern CA/Lake Tahoe ACBS Chapter wants to welcome you to join us at the California Delta for the 2017 Delta Cruise. The first weekend in October has a permanent place on many ACBS member’s calendars reserved for the ACBS Delta Cruise. This year should be even better if we reach our goal of 50 Boats.  So be sure to mark your October calendar for the weekend of the 6th, 7th and 8th for your trip to Isleton!

This is a fun weekend that starts with a traditional potluck on Friday night. Be sure to arrive early in the afternoon so you can enjoy exploring some of the California Delta’s 1000’s of miles of twisting, turning waterways .  Several of us head off to Giustis, Wimpy’s, Rosa’s or Windmill cove for a little lunch.  Don’t eat too much and be sure to take a map so you can find your way back to the B&W resort in time to enjoy the sunset BBQ with your ACBS friends.  Check in at registration to get your packets for the weekend.
