From Sailing Anarchy today. “Good Friday morning to everyone from the WxRouting weather center. The 66th annual Newport to Ensenada Yacht race kicks off today around noon off the Balboa Pier off Newport Beach, CA. A late season storm is dropping southward and a GALE WARNING* has now been posted for the inner waters and includes part of the race course. ”
Its probably not PC to say it but, this is how multihull sailors get their budget rigs, cross tubes and bow tubes. Rigs will come down, and hopefully everybody is safe. But guys, find the local mast scrap yards and score.
