Pacific Cup Updates
July 15, 2000
San Francisco, CA
Arrrhh. Twas a soggy night.
We started yesterday at 2:50pm. Followed Pegasus & Taxidancer out the gate. With their greater crew weight (12 guys? we have 8) they had the edge upwind. But once we cracked off, we started honkin. The sun is up now and roll call is at 9am, so we will be able to see who is ahead and to weather.
I got drenched on our first jib change, so I feel pretty gooey. But it will be warmer soon! Will get you some more pics when things dry out a bit.
