The Sunday after the first launch was Opening Day on SF Bay, but I evaded most of the madness and rowed / sailed out to the sandspit on Brooks Island (the island is closed to visitors).
The seagulls were nesting and quite excited by my visit, but I found a great seat with the usual zillion-dollar-view of SF == foggy and windy but still nice. In the other direction Angel Island looms above the fog and wind on the Bay.
I've rigged a removable bowsprit for the very used jib ordered from Bacon Sails in Annapolis. With any luck it will help solve the weather helm issues...
Since it was Opening Day after all, I flew my Union Jack just for the heck of it, but only while on the beach since this wasn't a reenactment.
