Sailors Escaping the Haze
It’s possible, but not easy. Like everyone in the Bay Area, local sailors are seeking escape from the smoky air blanketing Northern California. Fortunately, sailing helps. Friday’s fresh-air and fun seekers did their best to sail through the haze, as they closed out the Friday night summer beer can series. Like most events this year, the usual April start was postponed until May, and then, with updated protocols, the series started tentatively at the end of June. In the end, CYC was able to get 69 boats signed up, with a typical attendance of 35 to 45 boats for nine races in the series. It was much better than another Zoom cocktail party.
The rest of the weekend provided an additional escape for sailors across the Bay. Do you have some photos you want to share from your weekend of sailing? Send them to [email protected] and let us know your fall racing, cruising or fresh-air-seeking sailing plans.
