Early morning and it's clear here... but out in the bay a heavy fog looms.
Boats begin lining up
And they keep arriving
Sunshine showing through the sails.
Jon B and Dennis, showing off his freshly shaved baby face.
As the race officials waited for the fog to burn off (it didn't), they delayed the start of the race with speeches...
and more speeches....
and still more speaking.
Finally! on the water for yet more waiting.
Jon B waiving "good morning".
Amy and Don in the "don special" double.
Diane Poslosky (ETC head mistress) and her paddle partner.
Even the Mayor was there in his Coupe d'Ville.
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.
And Winnie, recent skills clinic grad, shows off her winning ribbon (she smoked me!).
