I hear you guys had some wild weather?
Yep. On Saturday the Coast Guard picked up someone, someone else was separated from his boat and was picked up by a passing ferry boat, sails were blown, the course seemed to be constantly littered with capsized or turtled boats, and getting back to the committee boat where the wind was said to be 30 knots was a relief. Two boats didn't report back in and caused concern but were later found over a mile away from the launch at the YC running up bar tabs. Lots of stories began with, "No sh**! There I was! Thought I was gonna die. . ."
To make up for it, the Sausalito YC invited us over for beers, a buffet fit for a king, and turned on the fire to warm us up.
Sunday, the winds were lighter and more manageable, and the Sausalito YC was as accommodating as the day before.
