L124C, did you race your Yankee 30 in the double handed lightship this year? If so, that was me in the C34 “Freya” that was on your hip at the windward mark. Nice move, getting a hotter angle by cutting over the Potato Patch. We took the more conservative approach by going down the ship channel which was way too deep for our A-kite. I did manage to do one major roundup in the vicinity of buoys 5&6 however. I did see you in a bit of distress when you did your gybe at Pt. Bonita. (We even had our hand on the mike, ready to call in the Coasties if you didn’t get back up on your feet!)
