OCEANSIDE—Boaters looking to sell gear or looking to purchase gear, will find all kinds of nautical items at the Oceanside Yacht Club swap meet on Dec. 7. Joe Yag, chairman of the Oceanside YC swap meet, said there will be dinghies, motors, parts, lines, sailing gear, electronics and possibly some kayaks and paddles.
“The items are always interesting,” Yag said.
The event will be held at the Oceanside Yacht Club, 1950 Harbor Drive North, on Dec. 7 from 7 a.m. to noon. Coffee and breakfast burritos will also be available for sale and the city will be offering a propane tank exchange.
The cost to reserve a booth is $20 per space or two spaces for the same price. Oceanside YC juniors are also looking for donated items to sell at their booth. All the proceeds from the space fees and sales at the Oceanside YC juniors booth will benefit the club’s juniors program.
The juniors program includes the Learn-to-Sail program, which is open to the public and offers beginner, intermediate and advanced sailing instruction to kids ages eight through 18. The juniors program also offers summer camps, sailing races throughout the year, and a monthly junior night where the young members learn about various boating related topics such as how to talk on the radio, tie knots and read a map.
Yag said there are typically 30 to 40 booths. He said the club raised a couple thousand dollars last year, which helped pay for the purchase of some Ron Dreyer, the junior sailing director, said the funds raised will go towards ongoing operation costs and purchasing new beginner-level sailboats.
