Photos of the Day:
Corinthian Midwinters

February 16 - Tiburon

The Corinthian YC's wildly popular midwinter series wrapped up this weekend with a light air jaunt to the Cityfront on Saturday and an abandonment due to lack of wind on Sunday. Despite the truncation of the series, a good time was had by all, both on the water and on land, as these photos demonstrate.

The pretty blue Mermaid served as crash boat and video platform.

Final regatta results were not posted as of Monday morning, but check back at www.cyc.org/race/2004/midwinters.html later on. We'll also have results, more photos and a report in the March issue of Latitude 38.

The often-victorious J/120 Mister Magoo finished first in PHRF 1 on Saturday.

The Schumacher 50 Morpheus and the 1D-35 Sensational sail down to Fort Mason.

On board Yucca, Hank Easom's 8-Meter, which finished second in PHRF 2.

Fleets A and B were able to start on Sunday, but they were recalled by the race committee when the wind died completely.

Sensation, one of four 1D-35s operated by Grand Prix Sailing Academy, was an all-women entry.
