    A very slow DH Farallones this year with most finishers returning well after dark, dedicated sailors in the fleet,
    sticking it out regardless of the late hour of completing the course. Of the 39 entries, 31 double handed crews succeeded
    in the intended adventure...

    [QUOTE]Finished Double Handed Farallone Islands race just before midnight last night which was the cut off. Light wind and super dark overcast once the sun set. Our AIS stopped working (monitors ocean traffic). We had to really stay alert coming in thru shipping channels on approach to SF Gate. Thanks to Rune Storesund for co-skippering Tiki Blue. Great loooong Day 😎



    We are pointing to Island behind us after rounding around 5pm. Gary Troxel & Rune Storesund, Tiki Blue
