Our friend Stephane Plihon is racing double handed to Hawaii on his Moore 24 for a very
good cause and here is his first day’s report. If you can, you might
see if you can kick down a little something for the kids….
The first day at sea… things are settling down slowly. Trying to
get into a rhythm. For us the race started when we left the dock as
our engine didn’t want to get in gear. We started sailing ‘upwind’,
it was not looking good to make the start on time until we got a tow
all the way out of the Alameda Esturary from a super nice guy.. We sailed
the rest of the way to San Francisco making our start just by 10 minutes.
What a relief..
