Photo of the Day: Vallejo Race
May 5 - San Pablo Bay
Today's Photo of the Day comes from Mary Coleman, who races the Farr 40 Astra. "The weather was great, but unfortunately there was no wind Sunday and Day 2 of the Vallejo Race was abandoned. I thought your readers might enjoy the attached picture of the all-women 1D35 crew sunning themselves on the trip from Vallejo back to SF. We passed by and saw them reading Latitude 38 on the bow in their swimsuits."
