    Randy Miller / Colin Dunphy aboard Mama Tried setting the pace on Saturdays
    BAMA Double Handed Farallones. The completed the lap du Stinkee Rocks @ 15:58:24,
    the only boat to finish before 4:00 PM. An extremely light start with generous ebb pushed the fleet
    out the channel where a light NW breeze slowly climbed in low teens until 14:00 when it reached the 20 knot range.

    Manageable seas in the 5-6 foot range and wall to wall sunshine made this year's offshore opener an enjoyable
    venture even if it wasn't particularly a swift one.



    Rafi Yahalom / David Kuettel aboard Looking Good looking good by the Point Bonita Light House




    Mark Zimmer / Mark Lewis on Khimara were the 2nd boat past Bonita but went too north to avoid the current
    and gave Looking Good and Ma's Rover a generous passing lane. Mark Eastham / Darren Doud on Ma's Rover
    would nip Khimaira by nine second at the finish to take 2nd finisher and then correct out with room to spare for Multihull
    division win!




    Andrew Scott / Gordon Nash on Papillon would correct out 3rd in Multis.
    Who knew Gordie could tri?




    The 1st Mono to enter the strait, was Buzz Blackett and Jim Antrim on Condor.
    They looked really good until...




    Point Diablo provided team Condor with some much undesirable devilish antics.
    Condor wrestle with the devil for quite some time until they we able to get the tack line loose and free
    the kite.

    Buzz weighs in:
    All was very well, until we rounded down, jibing, slamming the main against the now-leeward runner, and pinning the boat for about a minute at what seemed to be about 80. The cause was the steering totally locking up. I originally thought it was a sea lion or seal hitting one of the rudders. But there was no give, either way, and nothing dynamic about the lock up. So we now think it was the auto pilot, which was on stand-by, seizing the tiller pivot post. The auto pilot shut down immediately after the round-down (freeing up the steering) and will not even turn on now.



    Anyway, Scott Easom stood by while we sorted things out, which relieved a lot of my initial anxiety. The only damage we know about are a broken batten and two damaged batten adjusters. Very lucky under the circumstances.


    Despite the trauma, Condor would be the 1st monohull by some 45 minutes and hang on to
    7 minutes plus corrected time victory in Div 2 over Nathalie Criou / Annelise Taine aboard Envolee



    Rufus Sjoberg / Dylan Benjamin on the evil clown boat aka Rufless measuring up to the Princess Cruise Liner
    Rufless was 1st boat in the ULDB division and corrected out for a 21 minutes and change win as well!





    Sean Mulvihill / Jeff Mulvihill, the father and son team on Jamani would win the J-120 division by near 5 minutes over
    Michael O Callaghan / John Verdoia aboard Peregrine.





    Timo Bruck / Elaine Scott on J-120 Twist get a close up of Mile Rock and a 3rd place ribbon in division!

    More pics to follow, but FTR twas time to hoof it out from my super secret location up through the wilds and homeless camps
    which is the Lands End area of the GGNRA these days... But the wild flowers were raging!

    A few images from Express 27 Motorcycle Irene. Will Paxton and Zachary Anderson won the 6 boat E-27 fleet after reeling in
    Ray Lotto and Steve Carroll near the Islands then managed to put 20 minutes on them for the W and 4th overall.

    John Kernot and Andy Schwenk took corrected overall title aboard the Moore 24 Banditos, with Karl Robrock and Steve McCarthy on Moore 24 Snafu 2nd on corrected
    and Moore 24 Mooretician with Peter Schoen / Roe Patterson pulling strings for 3rd overall. A 1-2-3 Corrected sweep for the Mighty Moores!

    Jon Verdoia and Michael O'Callaghan sailed Mikes J-120 Peregrine to a 2nd place finish in the J-120 Division, John writes:






    "The Doublehanded Farallones (40th!) enjoyed a spectacular weather day - sun and unlimited visibility from the start to finish. Congrats to our buddies in the Moore 24 fleet for taking all the top spots - what an amazing and lasting design. Mike and I took the J-120 Peregrine for the third time - and we continue to learn what it takes to shorthand a big boat. The building breeze on the way back in provided a fast trip, until a snuffer for the A2 decided to stay at the top of the mast... We ended up 2nd in class - a few minutes behind Jumanji, who sailed an awesome race."







    "It never ceases to amaze me what nature can provide - a whale off the starting line early in the morning, and another surfacing between the bridge and Bonita. The islands themselves seemed greener than I can remember, but maybe it was just the glorious conditions."



    "Mike and I have done this together perhaps 20 times, mostly in the Moore. I always approach it with respect and some degree of trepidation... But afterwards, I come away having gained something, learned something, and experienced something valuable. Till next year."
