No pre-event feast tickets are being sold, but we do ask feasters to RSVP by using the sign-up form to say what they're planning to bring in order to better plan the meal.

The California Alcoholic Beverage Control license for Half Moon Bay Yacht Club requires that NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES MAY BE BROUGHT ON SITE! However, the yacht club bar will be open for cash and card purchases. Also, alcoholic beverages purchased from the bar may not be taken off the site.

Come and share a winter meal with the Baronesses and Our Populace! We look forward to seeing you there.

NOTE: In the storm last week a section of Hwy 92 was damaged and is not open.
The best alternate route is to continue up I-280 towards South San Francisco to the Westborough Blvd exit. Go west at the 2nd light onto Westborough, which will become Sharp Park Rd that will bring you down the hill to Hwy 1 in Pacifica. Follow the "Directions From Pacifica" in the Site Information section of the website. This adds approximately 20-30 minutes travel time.

Take your best route to California Highway 1, between the city of Half Moon Bay and Pacifica, heading towards Half Moon Bay harbor.

From Pacifica: Just past the Half Moon Bay airport, exit Highway 1 on Capistrano Rd which angles off to the right (If you come to a stoplight, you've missed your turn.  Follow directions from Half Moon Bay instead). Turn right onto Prospect Way just after Mezza Luna restaurant on your right. When Prospect ends, turn left onto Broadway and the next right onto Princeton Ave. The club is on the right at the end of Vassar Ave.

From Half Moon Bay: Just past the Princeton Jetty Beach (also called Surfer's Beach), turn left from Highway 1 onto Capistrano Dr (towards the harbor). Follow the curve around passing Half Moon Bay Brewing Company on your right, and turn left  in front of Mezza Luna restaurant on your left. When Prospect ends, turn left onto Broadway and the next right onto Princeton Ave. The club is on the right at the end of Vassar Ave.

Parking at the club on Vassar Ave is limited, but plenty of street parking in the surrounding area is available.  If parking on Vassar Ave, please park on the diagonal, do honor to the No Parking signs, and please be careful not to block the residential driveway accesses.

If you require handicap accessible parking, please contact the Event Steward or The Baronesses to get instructions of accessing the accessible spaces on-site.
