Pretty good carnage up there in the PNW. How did the boom go? Broach? Round up? We had the other end of that cold front down here in SF. The wind was in the low to mid twenties, and five foot seas with a three foot wind wave for the Double Handed Lightship Race outside the Gate. We blew out the leach on our 135 genoa, nothing like what you guys had. Fortunately the repair will be finished in time to do the Double Handed Farallones in two weeks.
