Leaving the dock, I knew we were in for a sailing treat, with temperatures in the mid-50’s and a forecast of rain all day. It wasn’t until just after crossing the starting line though, that a thick fog sat down on us, making it seem as if we were lone explorers on the water searching for the next shore (mark). Every now and then we caught a glimpse of the old Alexandria plant to orient ourselves and dodged the surprise arrival of river cruise boats. The wind was decent, competition good, but the unique weather challenges made it a race to remember. Chiripa, Chimera, We Few, and Rogue raced that day. Photo courtesy of Bryn Farrar & Chimera.
