SDSPS/SLRSPS End-of-Summer Raft UP

La Playa Cove: Friday August 26 – Sunday August 28

The San Diego Sail and Power Squadron is sponsoring this event, which will be located in La Playa Cove, the Port of San Diego’s anchorage between Southwestern and San Diego Yacht Clubs. There is easy access yacht clubs, shore, and land. This will be a great way to end your summer-on-the-water if you are heading back to school or work full-time or, if you are heading back to school or work full-time or, if you are planning to heading off to Catalina with the SLRSPS/D28 group after Labor Day, you can use this as your “shake down” cruise as we are!


You MUST have an anchoring permit to join in, but reservations are easy and are free! Permits can be obtained online at

We would like to get a head count (actually, boat count – we don’t care how many heads each boat has!) to begin activity planning.


Please let one of us know if you are planning or even hoping to attend:
