Bye Bye, Summer

Most sailors look at Labor Day with mixed feelings — hey, it’s three days of sailing, yet it’s also the official end of summer. But we’re guessing most Bay sailors are saying ‘Good riddance’ to this summer, considering we were socked in under a marine layer for most of it. If this weekend’s forecast of sunny skies and temps near 80 are signs of things to come, maybe this fall will make up for our summer woes.

As a reminder, ‘Lectronic Latitude will be taking Monday off but will back full force on Wednesday, September 8 — which is also the day of our annual  Mexico-Only Crew List Party at Encinal YC in Alameda (6-9 p.m. — no early birds, please). The party is a great way to meet prospective crew (or skippers) for the ride south. Registered 2010 Baja Ha-Ha skippers and first mates get in for free, everyone else pays just $7. Apertivos, no-host bebidos, and lots of opportunities to mingle with southbound folks — what a deal!

It’s monohulls in the front and multihulls in the back – or north – of Paraquita Lagoon.
