2012 Master Mariners


Rob Posting....

I'm very late at writing the post.  In May I had the honor of driving Bounty around the San Francisco race course for the annual Master Mariners Regatta.

Bounty is a beautiful 52 foot Sparkman and Stephens that was launched in 1950.


Every stitch of sail up!  Notice the fire boat blasting water in the air in the background.  This was part of the destroyer Iowa's escort out of the bay.
This downwind leg was incredible.  Winds were in the mid-20s and Bounty was moving a lot of water!

Fantastic crew!

Encinal Yacht Club did a wonderful job getting all these wooden beauties crammed into the harbor
