Dog,
That's better than cool, in fact, words can't really describe how
"neat" that shot is. It reminds me of one of the videos I watched
many years ago (title forgotten of course) when three or four sailors
are doing some serious chop hopping and then they all take off and get
some serious airtime on the same wave crest.

What's cool is that I know the guy on the blue sail in the background.

And I think I know all four on the North Sails. At least the guy in first is
Steve Bodner. He often posts here.

The two buoys form the start-finish line for the Friday Night racing
series at the St Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. I used to "race" in those
before injuring my back.

I'm still rehab'ing and photos like that are almost enough to get me out there
ahead of time. Sigh...

Thanks,
Cliff

ps Who's the guy on the blue sail.

Yeah... If I were in that pic, I'd definitely be the guy with the
blue sail. Last time I went to a race, it blew 30+ so I blew off
racing to have some fun. I think Charles has forgiven me.... But I
really don't care.

It's no wonder that Sailing Anarchy uses your photos, they are great!
That sure looks like some fun sailing.

That would be Chris Boggs. He told me there are 3 other's that have that
sail that sail Crissy, but he thinks it's himself.
