This is actually pretty cool for me because I had to help judge the event so my daughter grabbed the camera and just started shooting! Did a pretty good job I think.

And more to come, 33 Images Total

Over 30" boats use the big circle
Under 30" boats use the little circle


Set mid way in the nav event, you enter the "Circle of Doom", make a 180* turn inside the circle without touching the boat to the edge and then exit the "Circle of Doom" and continue through the nav course... sounds easy, and can be... if the wind is not blowing... or if the wind is blowing predictably... which is basically never in S.F.

fun stuff!
