12 METER NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIPS 2011

It is the first official day of ¬†Fall, and the first race of the first day of the 12 meter north american championships. 10 boats in three classes. The real regatta will be the match racing between Victory “83 (K 22) and Courageous (US 26) I would give Victory an edge upwind and Courageous the edge downwind. I expect that unless one or the other catches a wind shift, the two boats will never be more than a few boat lengths apart.

THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE AGAIN

The Golden Gate bridge is one of those places that never looks the same from one moment to the next. It is no wonder that the number one business in San Francisco is tourism. The bridge also showcases the micro climate that is San Francisco. It was built to connect San Francisco to the Redwood Empire, what I might today refer to as the 101 corridor.

The America’s Cup will be sailed under the bridge a year from now.
