    2017 Single Handed Farallones



    42 Single Handed Sailors answered the call
    and sailed out of San Francisco Bay and into the fog this AM. Light winds are predicted throughout the day with a bit more breeze as they near
    the Farallones. The sailors have until 0600 Sunday to complete the 56nm course around the stinky rocks. Stay tuned for reports as they filter in!

    Looking at the AIS Tracker: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais...37.871/zoom:13

    12:30 PM It appears that Green Buffalo, Freedom, Pork Chop Express have retired.

    Sweet Pea, Hylite, & Galaxy are setting crab pots off of Fort Cronkhite .

    Bandicoot is just past the approach buoy, Foxxfire and Six Brothers 1/2 way up the channel.



    The current satellite indicates the may be some sun & wind out by the stinky rocks!

    Just in, Lenora Joseph Mannion's Hunter 33 has a too close encounter with a whale outside the gate and was taking on water.
    She made it back to her slip at Gashouse Cove and is currently getting checked for damages.

    Add Duramater and White Shadow to list of retirees..
