The Eastside Bunch, Russian River Valley
I recently set sail with the Eastside Bunch, RRV, on their Eastside Wine Regatta, a wine & seafood extravaganza, with an altruistic goal of also raising funds for the Save the Bay Organization (since 1961) with a portion of tickets and wine sales going to such a worthy cause- and also celebrating the Bay Area connection to the America’s Cup Race.

Casting off, I set sail to Acorn Winery/Alegria Vineyards:
Here’s looking at you, kids.
