On Saturday morning in the Bay Area, things were quiet. Maybe too quiet. In just a few hours, there were round-ups and wipe-outs all over the Bay, as well as a few moments of glory.
The day started warm and glassy in Marin, and hot and stagnant in the South Bay as we left Redwood City to watch the Westpoint Regatta.
It was glassy all the way to Treasure Island when the breeze kicked in and built, built . . . and built into full-on nuclear conditions. Suddenly, you could hear the sound of sails tearing.
We’ll have a full roundup of the Westpoint Regatta in the August issue’s Racing Sheet. We’d like to say ‘well done’ to everyone who sailed on Saturday — racers and cruisers alike. Just another summer day in the Bay Area!
