The race was a good one this year with solid breeze all through the afternoon in the mid to upper teens.  Temptress was first to set a chute with Piranha staying high and outside looking for the big lift that did come before sunset.  But the race was really won or lost in a restart after sunrise as the fleet all entered Bahia de Todos Santos after stopping some 8-10 miles short of the finish line.  It took several hours and we were close enough to watch las t years overall winner Taxi Dancer finish.  Temptress gets the hard luck award this year.  Just when it seemed a massive veer to theleft would put her ahead of Piranha on the beat in to the finish, it went so far left that it came off the land and went literally over the top of Temptress from a cliff leaving them becalmed as a tantalizing few boatlenghts away it was blowing fifteen knots.
