Notes and Photos from Flibbertigibbet’s Summer Wanders
By Christine Weaver | October 9, 2020 | California Delta | 0
A remarkable 92 boats signed up for 2020’s Delta Doo Dah Dozen, so when we put out the call for stories and photos to run in the October issue of Latitude 38, we received more than we could possibly squeeze into the pages of the magazine. Jim Adams of Flibbertigibbet was particularly generous in his contributions. We’re sharing here more of his photos that we didn’t have room for on newsprint.
“Although we live in and keep our boat in Discovery Bay in the Delta, we had to go to Sausalito to have some work done,” writes Jim. “On our way back, we came up next to several boats that either had Delta Doo Dah burgees or were going from San Francisco Bay to the Delta to spend some time in the summer sun.”
We’ll follow up October’s look back at spring and summer in the Delta with a report on the bash back to the Bay in the November issue of Latitude 38, coming out on Friday, October 30.
For Philippe Jamotte the initial high was setting off on October 1, on the adventure of a lifetime — to sail singlehanded around the world as the clouds, fog and smoke of San Francisco Bay gave way for an ideal departure.
