race day

there was a pretty good breeze out on the bay today as we made our way to the starting line of the match race between the oracle bmw and alinghi america’s cup class boats. our timing could not have been better as we crashed through the swells at a brisk enough pace, and close enough to the racers to draw the attention of at least one of the committee boats (or maybe it was just one of the homeland defense boats). they must have briefly mistaken the boate as a vessel of disruptive anarchists bent on creating an embarrassment of one-upmanship out on the bay. they soon realized that we were not there to offer additional competition, merely cruising in a sightseeing capacity. the boate shall leave her contesting of the america’s cup for another day.
so here’s the start of the race viewed from the boate:
