MBYC ocean race and Today's Quote

"The ocean has always been a salve to my soul...the best thing for a cut or abrasion was
to go swimming in salt water. Later down the road of life, I made the discovery that salt
water was also good for the mental abrasions one inevitably acquires on land."
-Jimmy Buffett

The Morro Bay Yacht club ocean fleet race was today and it should be an interesting day sailing if the start was any indication. The winds were close if not at a Force 5 ( 17 - 21 knots/15-24) or even up to a gale (28 knots or 31 mph) so everyone had the foul weather gear on. Then leaving the harbor not one but two boats ran aground near the harbor mouth. One boat was able to get clear but the other was aground hard and had to wait for the tide to come up a bit. Hopefully on the next race I can get some action shots to post.
