A couple of years after Tom Sutton and John Bottari attended the District 5150 Blue Angels Fundraiser, our own Jeff Allen offered his powerboat, the Tangoroa, to get the Blue Angel perspective from the Bay.  The boat holds 20, but Capt'n Jeff had on board his first mate son, Michael, 3 of Michael's friends, and Rotarians Jim Ring and date (visiting), Chris Major and Joanne Pugh, Susan Lundy and Jim Spellerberg, and Hugh Murphy with Marjan.  We learned the unpublished history of Sausalito and Belevedere's coastal residences that only a multi-generation resident could know, and then saw the French, the Blue Angels, the United Airways, and various other acrobatic air escapades while drinking beer and eating lunch.  Only Jeff had to work the entire time, being totally alert in a VERY crowded bay.  Thanks, Jeff...you gave all of us a wonderful memory and your generosity in providing the boat, the work, and the history is very appreciated by your fellow Harborites.

"Our" swimmers graduate!

In 2016, the Rotary Club of San Rafael Harbor decided to sponsor the transportation of children from the west end of San Rafael (Canal District) to central San Rafael High School so "Make a Splash" non-profit teaching center could give them swimming lessons.
