This past weekend the unthinkable happened here in San Francisco. A boat (Daisy) and two sailors were lost while competing in the Doublehanded Lightship race. The conditions were pretty crappy out there, 16 foot seas and 25+ knot winds. Speculation is that they were pooped when they hit the shoal as those 16 foot swells were breaking over the shoal.
A friend of mine suggested we put daisy decals on our transoms in honor of these sailors like they used to in his motorcycle days.
This is a crappy picture of a daisy decal that I'm going to lift from my daughter's room to put on the transom this weekend.
