This past weekend, January 21-22, I participated in one of the largest regattas on San Francisco Bay at the Corinthian Yacht Club. Although I have owned my Ranger 23, Patience, for over 22 years, I had not raced her since 2006. After weeks of preparing her, both days’ conditions of 25 knots of wind and driving rain tested both of us.
This series of photos was taken from the Committee boat moments after the starting gun went off in Sunday’s race. Wet, wild and cold but a fun return to one of my favorite pastimes.
