The Weekend Report: Corinthian’s Last Beer Can

There is no denying that the seasons, they are a-changin’. The kids are back in school, there were Halloween costumes for sale at Costco, and Corinthian Yacht Club’s beer can series came to a conclusion under dramatic skies.

Anywhere else in the world, this might be seen as an ominous evening on the water. For Bay Area sailors, it was just another night of racing.

Not to worry, racers. There are still plenty of beer cans going throughout the Bay. And once those end, there will be a bajillion regattas throughout the fall, winter and spring to tied you over.

But with that said, we still got a little misty to see the Corinthian season go.

“The lighting was beautiful [Friday] night,” wrote Kathleen Perry on our Facebook page. A few beer-caners sail into the 2019 summer sunset.
