We had a marvelous time on October 4 when Norman DeVall, Nadya Williams and Gerry Condon followed Golden Rule in Norman’s boat to get some great pictures! Our friends Steve Scalmanini and Annie Esposito of Ukiah joined us, and Norman’s friend Michael Matthay. Mike......No comment
Upcoming Schedule – San Francisco Bay
The Golden Rule Peace Boat is in the SF Bay!
On Thursday, Oct. 1, we moved to Sausalito, where we will be docked at Schoonmaker Marina, Dock B, #59 thru the weekend.
Next week we will be back in San Francisco and ready for Fleet Week activities.
We will probably be at the Hyde St. Pier (National Maritime Museum) Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 6-8 (4 nights). People can tour the boat from 1 pm to 5 pm or call Gerry Condon to get on the list for a morning sail, weather permitting.
Vetetans For Peace is organizing a public event Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 7 pm, at the Veterans Building in San Francisco, on Van Ness at McAllister. There will be a presentation from the crew of the Golden Rule, an update on current antinuclear actions by Jackie Cabasso, and discussion about Fleet Week organizing, past and present.
On Friday October 9 we move to Gashouse Cove for 2 nights. Our intention is to sail in the Bay on Friday during the Parade of Ships, and again on Saturday, the big day. We want to be seen by thousands of people. We will be careful, however, not to do anything that would put the Golden Rule or her crew at risk, legally or otherwise.
We are coordinating with members of Veterans For Peace who will have a table at Pier 41 on Saturday, Oct. 10, with VFP and Golden Rule materials. We will also be talking with other peace activists about coordinating activities during Fleet Week.
On Sunday October 11 we will spend the night close to the Golden Gate Bridge in preparation for a 6:30 am October 12 departure heading toward Noyo Bay.
Finally, we are told that the crew may not have easy access to showers during Fleet Week in SF. So if anybody wants to invite a Golden Rule crew member or two home for a shower and a bite to eat, maybe even a bed for the night, please let me know.
Our final educational / fundraising event before we arrive in Humboldt Bay will be in Ft. Bragg on October 15 – date, time, and place to be determined.
Please feel free to call me anytime at 206-499-1220.
Thank you for all your support. We are looking forward to a great week.
Sailing for a Nuclear Free World!
You can help to make things happen. Invite the Golden Rule crew to a house party, a potluck dinner (or just to dinner).
We are looking forward to making even more friends and to continue sailing for a nuclear free world.
