These pics are from 2 different regattas this fall. BAYS #1 was at the San Francisco Yacht Club which is actually nestled in Belvedere Cove where the "island" of Belvedere connects with Tiburon, Marin. They get towed around Belvedere and race in Richardson Bay. The swanky views from atop Belvedere sweep from San Francisco to the Golden Gate Bridge and Sausalito just across the way. On the second day, I managed to get some shots from a boat.
This video is from the last day of summer sailing at Encinal Yacht Club in Alameda, aka as "Fun Day." They divided up into teams and had to create some makeshift sails... and then race. Simon takes it! But then he loses in the AC challenge agains Andrew Palfrey, who is Artemis Racing's head coach for their America's Cup team.
