M onday dawned gray and drizzly. We joined the Ha-Ha parade and motorsailed by numerous tourist boats and San Diego fireboats throwing up plumes of spray on our way to Point Loma and the start. What a sight to behold. At opposite ends of the spectrum, the fleet included Tiny Dancer, a Dana 27, and Emma, a Deerfoot 62. There were 13 multihulls sailing south, including the 63-foot Profligate, of course, and Seabird, a diminutive F-27 Corsair, captained by 74-year-old Richard Holden. As we approached the point, as if on cue, an aircraft carrier steamed into the harbor, right in the thick of things.
