The slightly overcast morning started with a cortado and cafe con leche coffee at the Nautica. As we were gazing outside several sailboats went past with their sails up. This was an unusual sight for us since sailboats usually motor into the bay. There were more and more sailboats of various lengths maneuvering to line up for the start, which seemed to take forever. Finally the horn and they were off.....but not really. In an area noted for its high winds the boats were very nearly becalmed. This was the wrong day for a race.
