Sailagram: A Snapshot of July Sailing

By Nicki Bennett | August 7, 2023 |

We’re excited to share all these excellent photos our readers have taken during the past month.

A Question for the Nation
The boat is a unique ketch that my dad — Jean Filloux — designed himself with a naval architect friend at Sparkman & Stephens to be built with a first-of-its-kind manufacturing method that Jean came up with.
Silver Mines
Just like in the Comstock Lode in Nevada, there's still a lot of silver to be won from the 2023 racing season. It's available by reporting the races you've already sailed in 2023.
Oops …
This month's photo was sent in by Candy from the Swan 44 'Infidel.' And while it's not her original photo, it makes a great item for the CC(!).

It was no surprise that this was not a group of drinkers. Most of them had come by kayak, with a few small sailboats and traditional pulling boats in the mix. They were on a week-long tour of the Bay, and had arranged to camp out on our club's guest dock for the night.
