I think this would make a great mash-up picture where the left side of the photo would be a modern view (color...with a modern sailboat and person with radio gear), blended with the original photo on the right (still black and white). It would be a great photo that would span the gap between past and present. Any interest Craig? Bob SF

Didn't recognise it as that, I saw a pic of a Lady puttin a sailboat in at a completely tree/foliage free concrete rimmed area ( I am sure its changed, trees grow ), I will keep searching for that pic..

Wonder if 80 was even there, maybe a wagon trail !

Rudder and sail settings are changed at the end of each run to reflect whether the boat is sailing with or into the wind.
Thanks Craig for the info and pictures on the free sailing boats. It is great that the club in San Francisco has so much history there in the park.

Thanks for posting the upcoming events, and if the old/new photo's could be done as described in the posts above, that would be great to see.

Does anyone know if the wheelchair marathon is on Saturday or Sunday? Or Both? I've been trying to find out if one day or the other would be better to attend the Sub Event.

Also...Craig, thanks for offering to do the mash up photo...it will be really cool.

Soggy Day in GGP today. No wind and lots of heavy mist and fog. I think I had more water on deck than I did below. No sign of any gates for blocking traffic on Saturday. Looking forward to seeing the Sub Event at the Casting Pools. Bob SF

The Wheeler One Design NorCal Race Series #3 is this Sunday on Spreckels Lake, GG Park with registration ($5) begins at 10:30 with racing at 1.

Four of the top five Wheelers at this year's national in San Diego Nationals are owned by Bay Area skippers and we expect to see them and our SFMYC's Wheelers on the lake.

For those not familiar with Wheelers, they are the largest RC one design boats and are patterned after the full size "Maxi" racers. They are bigger than our Santa Barbara One Design (70" LOA) with a 79" LOA, 30lb minimum draft and driven by 2000 sq in of sail. These are very fast racing boats who's design will allow them to plane in a strong blow.

Sadly, my Wheeler will be on-the-hard during her haul out for upgrades. Perhaps she'll be ready for the next NorCal Wheeler series race 4 which will be in Monterey, November 4th.

I took a pic this AM after leaving the Sub event at the casting ponds...

Of course, the terrain has changed alot since the older shot, I walked around to see if I could get close to the same spot.

The two trees are either gone or so big now I cant make it out.

Also looks like all the pines on the other side are gone and we now have eucalyptus.

The only other vantage point was not doable as there was a large excersize class in the way ...
