End of January is time to celebrate our local herring once again!
This season we are mixing it up and partnering with our friends from “Of The Sea” to provide a different experience than our usual “Festival”. The 2017 SCBC Herring Celebration will feature a screening of “Of The Sea”, a local award-winning film by Mischa Hedges about fishermen, seafood and ocean sustainability. The event will also include a talk with the filmmakers, a brief presentation on the SCBC at Cass Gidley Marina project, and of course tasty herring dishes from some of your favorite local restaurants – Fish, Osteria Divino, Restaurant Angelino, Chef Dr Davey Jones and the new Joinery. As always, should our little fishy friends choose not to show up or spawn on time (they like to keep us in suspense every year) our chefs will be serving equally delectable dishes, several with local seafood. Fort Point Brew Co. will pour beer. Dry Creek Vineyard wines will be offered.
This event is a fundraiser for Phase I of renovating the SCBC site at Cass Gidley Marina, which is expected to begin in Spring.
Tickets must be purchased to enjoy this fundraising event.
Tickets are $40 in advance, and include the screening, filmmaker panel and herring lunch.
Beer and wine $5. You have a choice of two screening times at 11:00am or 2:30pm, enjoying the film before or after your herring lunch.
The Sausalito Community Boating Center at Cass Gidley Marina is a 501(C) 3 non-profit organization established to create a Community place that
It will be a place in Sausalito for locals and maritime groups to hold classes, access the waterfront and build community.
Please learn more about the project in the video below…
The marina, which is adjacent to Dunphy Park, is owned by the City of Sausalito and accessible to the public. SCBC will operate the facility and teach sailing to children and adults and have part of our fleet available for rent. We will also have traditional wooden boats on display, an eco class room, and indoor exhibit space. Our immediate goal is to restore docks and facilities and bring them to ADA compliance. We are currently in the Design Review and Permit process with the City of Sausalito, and hope that our Phase I providing access to the water (abutment, ramp, docks) will be completed by early 2017 latest.
