29er Nationals

I am training to be a PRO (Principal Race Officer) - I took a class about a year ago and passed the theory test, now I need some practice on the water as apprentice PRO before I can get a certification for Club level PRO and help organize club level events on the Bay. My way of giving back to the community of volunteers that make me a happy racer.

So I helped with the 29er Nationals. These boats didn't exist when I was dinghy sailing. They are FAST and super unstable. You can keep them upright if there is no wind.

I did some recording of finishes.

Helped with the start

Race management is really interesting to me and helps quite a bit with race tactics when I am in a race.

Elise update

Serge and I hoisted Elise - she needs quite a bit of love before she can sail again but it was so good to see her

Sausalito Fireworks on Echappee

We had prime seats, right by the barge

On the way back - I still love sailing at night

when it was still warm

We had a delicious dinner!
