Leading off the line on the committee boat end was newcomer Frederic Scheer and crew on Far Niente, but making all the right decision, White Knight took the leeward end of the starting line and stayed on the low road to the turning mark past Point Loma to take a commanding lead and never look back. Meanwhile most of the rest of the boats rolled over each other repeatedly on the high road and dodged San Diego’s famous kelp with varying degrees of success. Piranha got the inside at the turning mark to take second heading toward the beach, but Temptress slid by on the way in the channel to take second and Piranha third. Nice day, easy race in 4-11 knots of wind. Great way to spend a Winter Sunday in California while our East Coast friends shrink wrap their boats and winterize the engines! SDYC really put out a great spread for a poolside party afterwards that was well attended. Hot Rum #2 is on Sunday November 18.
