Yesterday was sailboat racing day. Robert and his friend Jakob spent the day preparing for, and then waiting for, the start of the Plastic Classic Regatta held by the Bayview Boat Club in San Francisco. After a number of postponements, the regatta was eventually canceled due to lack of wind! Robert and Jakob, aboard the only boat without an engine, managed to drift southward to somewhere near Brisbane before the committee boat finally called the race. They could barely see the starting line!
Meanwhile, Rory spent the day at the Encinal Yacht Club in his first regatta representing the Richmond Yacht Club! Woo hooo! Crushed ’em. Well, not exactly. These were the big leagues. But he hung in there. Very impressive.
