Sounds like an excellent soap opera. But it's not, it's a race...a super race. I am joining David over at Never Sea Land for the Big Daddy Pursuit Race. David has an Olson 34, Temerity, that is in training for the 2010 Pacific Cup. Part of this training apparently includes bringing sub-par sailors and their 8 year old daughters out for a race around the Bay.
The Big Daddy is a race I've always wanted to do. It's a reverse start pursuit race like the Three Bridge Fiasco but it starts over by Richmond then goes around Angel Island and Alcatraz and then back to Richmond. I'm pretty sure you can only go one direction but I don't know that for sure.
Since David doesn't have his own personal paparazzi (Zen, I have put a stamp on your thank you gift but haven't mailed it yet), I had to grab a picture of his boat sitting in the dock. We'll bribe some other racers to get some shots of us at the Big Daddy for the Temerity collection.
But there are two important questions. First, do you think both blogs will give the same account of the race (me for example: frickin' maniacal cap'n pooched up the start; him for example: how did that &*%#!@%$ guy make it all the way across one ocean and a third of the way across another?)?
Second question: what superhero am I going to dress as?
