Falcon Still on for Saturday at 2 p.m.

For those of you tracking the progress of Maltese Falcon on, you’ve already noticed that Tom Perkins’ megayacht pulled into Drakes Bay this morning around 6 a.m. Rest assured, Falcon is still scheduled to make her grand entrance to the Bay at 2 p.m. on Saturday. The next few days will be spent tidying up the boat after its passage from Hawaii — no quick chore on a boat that measures 289 feet overall.
