    Saturday's SSS Singlehanded Farallones Race looked good on paper, a couple days out.





    Warm weather, great visibility and a southerly breeze along the shoreline... Even a 4.0 knot ebb 2 hours before the scheduled start.

    The first edition of the race since 2016 was blessed with relatively benign, modest breezes for early Sunday afternoon’s farewell to the fleet of 33 IMOCA solo skippers, 13 Class
