Marina West Yacht Club created and initiated “Delta Reflections” Lighted Boat Parade for the benefit of the Greater Stockton Community to launch the Christmas Holiday Season. For 35 years this spectacular parade of 50 boats or more, has been held on the first Saturday of December. Every boat is uniquely decorated in the spirit of Christmas. Through the parade, Marina West Yacht Club has provided thousands of dollars to local charities.
“The California Delta encompasses about 1,300 miles of waterways. The main contributing rivers are the Sacramento and the San Joaquin. Before these rivers empty into the Pacific Ocean, they pass through some of the best boating waterways in this country.”* MWYC stages cruises to anchorages and other locations throughout the Delta and San Francisco Bay.
