Re: One dead, four missing in Farallones sailboat race

Yeah, I just heard about them calling off the search. That seriously sucks. That poor skipper is going to be dealing with some very heavy stuff.

I'll be interested in the final report on this one. Being on the rocks in two wave strikes seems to indicate that they were cutting it close. But that seems to be the standard to a certain degree in this race according to others who do it:
