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!)
Nope...wasn't me, but I'll pass the comments on to the Yankee group. With only One Hundred and Thirty something Yankees built, there are only a few of us in the Bay Area. Besides....I don't do "distress"!
Not this week anyway
