          I count on fingers and toes, so ... it's an approximate number.

            Can we count on some fine Slackwater imagery from the East Side of San Pablo this year?

              I spent most of the day shaking the camera lense at a light house, ran out of coffee, and posted some pics

              The wind was light early in the race and picked up as the day went on,

                pics - Vallejo Sat more wind

                The wind speed needed to build to match the forecast (?),
                and it changed direction.

                          I'm beginning to think the Party Circuit should be renamed the Crap Shoot Circuit. Between the season closer last year and Vallejo this year it seemed to be a matter of navigating wind holes than tactical racing.

                          On Saturday the Race committee started things up in very unsettled winds. A few minutes before our warning the wind shut down at the pin end the the current pushed us (and a few others) halfway down to the Berkeley pier. Oh well, it only took us another 28 minutes just to get back to the line. There goes Saturday... 3 other transition zones along the way made for more guess work. At least we picked up on the northerly pressure on San Pablo and had a good run down to Vallejo.

                          Sunday more of the same but at the other end. Exited the channel ahead of the fleet (by staying away from everyone else), had a great upwind leg staying in touch with the longer waterline boats in the class, just to be first to the hole encompassing the finish line and miss the pressure 5 boatlengths away. Watched a third of the fleet catch up from behind...

                          We did have some of the nicest sail up to the wind hole. Tight spinnaker reaching in completely flat water. What a joy!

                            sunday starts

                            Sunday starts were colorful, a few loud voices.

                            I was late to arrive and missed most of the boats by trying to find a spot on the end of Mare Island to
                            take pictures. The roads to the end of Mare Island are fenced off, but I found the golf course.

                            A few pictures are online (Link)

                            I heard a postponement signal and looked around.
                            Kokopelli, was definitely stuck getting out of the harbor
                            and stayed in that position for quite a while:


                            J-105: sail USA 31 ~appeared to be the best start from the limited perspective ashore



                            The fleet crossed with some fanfare and pretty good boat-handling, considering the close quarters


                            Racer X and Astra appeared to start well,

                            both boats handling nicely:


                            Kokopelli is definitely bigger than some others:


                            Multihulls started last. Most of the boats did not start on Sunday. A few multihulls DNF'ed (light-fluky) Saturday
                            and they did not make the trip to Vallejo for Sunday's start.
