June 13 - Berkeley Circle

Glenn Youngling, co-owner of Hazardous Waste, captured these shots of the 33-boat boat fleet duking it out for the Pacific Coast Championship. San Francisco Yacht Club hosted the two-day, five-race event this past weekend.

Walking away with the championship trophy was Chris Perkins of the StFYC with Good Timin'.
For all the race results see http://www.sfyc.org/website/regattas/raceresults/subframe.htm. We'll have more in the July issue of Latitude 38.

What's Up with This Place?

June 13 - Brannan Island

One of our favorite things about roving around the Delta is that we always discover new places. While exploring Brannan Island last Sunday we chanced upon this haven of big cruising trimarans. Located just north of the Rio Vista Bridge, adjacent to the now-defunct Cliff Haus Restaurant, there's a large basin filled with tris, as well as a boatyard ashore. Some hulls were apparently undergoing repairs or modifications. But with no signs posted and few people around to ask questions of, we went away wondering, "What's up with this place?" Can someone fill us in? Email Andy.
