Wonder what the guy at the rental counter would have said...

You know it's regatta time when heavily overloaded rental cars start showing up at Crissy Field. Roof racks? We don't need no steeenkin' roof racks!

Got to SF yesterday, met up with the rest of the Gorge Cup fleet today. Good showing - five juniors (Fiona, Alyson, Ben, Jay, Alex), MacRae, Tavis. Bunch of Gorge freestylers down here for the Nationals as well; some of them might even do slalom. Went out today for a few runs with MacRae, Fiona and Alyson to shake out the legs. The girls were doing great despite the gusty/flukey conditions (the fog was well inside the bay today).

The fleet is pretty stacked with visiting rock stars and hot local sailors. Looks like at least 50 sailors. Racing starts tomorrow; Waterhound should be the best bet for good coverage.

Thats why the rental car place is off site and you go back to the airport to get your gear.
Great to have and the gorge sailors down but where's the defending champ?

He had a hotel reservation and was all ready to go, but had to bail last-minute to take care of business. I'm he's sneaking peaks at the webcams periodically...

Thanks, Chris - but that didn't seem to have done me much good overall. You had a great regatta - well sailed all around.
