Friday nights finished up

September 3, 2012   

I was invited by Glen and Gaby picture above (all pictures by Joy Stortz) to sail this summer of Friday nights. So when I got a chance I jumped aboard Q. Q is a stunning boat which is custom designed by my favourite yacht designer Carl Schumacher and was built in NZ.

Last friday was our last night and Glen let me helm the last part of the race which was really fun as the boat is so much fun to sail. We sail Friday nights with no spinnaker and a self tacking Jib boom.

The course normally takes us up to the golden gate and then back down towards Angel Island before heading back across Racoon Straits and the finish off Corinthian YC.

Some nights the fog rolls in and as the sun sets it creates a silver lining for the clouds. Beautiful.

On the way back in after another podium position for the weekly dinner at SFYC. I am looking forward to next year already!

It was such fun to be home enough to do this weekly racing with the team on Q.
