Early morning and it's clear here... but out in the bay a heavy fog looms.
Jon B and Dennis, showing off his freshly shaved baby face.
Amy and Don in the "don special" double.
And Winnie, recent skills clinic grad, shows off her winning ribbon (she smoked me!).
Boats begin lining up
and still more speaking.
Diane Poslosky (ETC head mistress) and her paddle partner.
And they keep arriving
As the race officials waited for the fog to burn off (it didn't), they delayed the start of the race with speeches...
Finally! on the water for yet more waiting.
Even the Mayor was there in his Coupe d'Ville.
Sunshine showing through the sails.
and more speeches....
Jon B waiving "good morning".
And the fog never lifted in time for the Alcatraz route; so we had to share the Angel Island route with the speed racers, who left us in the dust.
