Before the rain arrived we had about as beautiful a weekend as one could hope for in the middle of November for sailing on San Francisco Bay. Both Saturday and Sunday were stunningly clear, and Saturday provided good breezes, allowing racers in all corners of the Bay to overcome the strong ebb.
The Matthew Turner was again out strutting her stuff, and the recently restored and launched schooner Viveka was out flashing her sailing wardrobe. Racers were sailing in Jeff Zarwell’s RegattaPRO midwinters, the Berkeley Yacht Club Midwinters and the Corinthian Yacht Club Fall Series. We also crossed tacks with a fleet of Lasers sailing out toward the Golden Gate and back. The world is facing challenges, but if you were sailing the Bay on Saturday, it was easy to forget them for awhile.
We’re thankful we’re finally getting some rain. We’re also thankful it’s falling midweek. The view from ‘hump day’ is for a nice weekend ahead.
