In Topic: Packing up Pier 80 SF

Uncle Larry went threw all that trouble to store that boat and then ship it to SF only to chop it up?

Ok

Doesn't bode well for either AC34 boats if they haven't been chopped already.

That would make for a interesting comparison in the years to come.

 

What percentage of AC-34 boats are still sailing compared to AC

Cardiff Bay saved the best for last for the 11-boat Extreme 40 fleet, where Alinghi, The Wave, Muscat and J.P. Morgan BAR battled it out until the bitter end for the top positions, in one of the closest and most exciting three-horse fights seen in the Series, which resulted in a three way collision and three consecutive penalties too boot in the final race.

 

That looked liked the end of the optimist nationals :) Three boat collision , BAR throwing away a second place and the last place boat winning the regatta :) Very entertaining .

NAPA, Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown of Caifornia declared a state of emergency for southern Napa on Sunday after a strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.0 hit the region, causing scores of injuries and damage and knocking out power to thousands of people across the region.
The governor, in his statement, said his emergency services office would work closely with state and local emergency managers to respond to residents and critical infrastructure that were affected.
The temblor struck about 10 miles northwest of American Canyon six miles south of Napa around 3:20 a.m., according to the United States Geological Survey. It was the most powerful earthquake to hit the Bay Area since the Loma Prieta earthquake of 1989, which collapsed the Bay Bridge. At least four aftershocks were reported Sunday.http://mobile.nytime...?_r=0&referrer=

 
About 25 miles from the epicenter. A pretty big shaker - lasted about 8 seconds which seems like an eternity when your house is shaking. Knocked a picture of Alinghi off the wall and it smashed, but no harm to the USA17 picture or anything else.

Glad you are ok , I've been thru a few here in So. Cal.

As for the pictures it couldn't be more clear who's side God is on :)

As far as this recent event went they do appear to be the class of the field . Average to bad starts but sailed thru the fleet to a podium finish for each race .
