We are so excited to announce the 23rd year of the Council of Business & Industries’ premier networking event on the SF Bay! Thank you to past sponsors, and welcome new sponsors to our annual event. The program begins with recognition of all the sponsoring businesses. The Yacht Tour then leaves from the Marina Bay Yacht Harbor and slowly winds its way around the Santa Fe channel highlighting Richmond businesses. We will then sail out to the bay to watch the Blue Angels and other aerobatic planes on their practice runs!

This is the key event of the year to network and mingle with other business representatives, City Council Members from Richmond, El Cerrito, Pinole, San Pablo, Hercules, Rodeo; City of Richmond department managers, Planning/Design Review Board/and Economic Development Commissioners; local, county, regional and state elected officials; neighborhood council representatives, regulatory liaisons, community and neighborhood leaders, etc.

In addition, your Company banner is displayed on the outside railings of Hornblower’s yacht to be seen by all when the yacht sails around the Bay, tour will pass by company site if possible, a table will be reserved for your Company along with a bottle of wine, ten additional drink tickets, as well as additional media advertising.
