Fleet 9 Enjoys a Day Chasing Rabbits and Ducks?
by Terry Johnson, L2720
“Let’s Go Sailing!” That’s all the invite said, and that’s just what members of the young Fleet 9 in Cabrillo Beach did this last Sunday, August 24. Five boats went out around 11 AM, early, in order to have time to sail and return before the infamous winds (usually 18+ knots) of Hurricane Gulch came up around 2PM. Though most of us had already seen it, we thought about sailing around to see “The World’s Largest Rubber Duck” visiting Ports of Call in San Pedro for Tall Ships’ Week, but we decided to stay closer to home and try and tune up our racing skills.
