Sixteen schooners participated in San Francisco Yacht Club’s Great Schooner Race,  which benefited the Spaulding Wooden Boat Center.  Thanks to Bill Moore, I was out on the Express 27, Shenanigans to watch the parade through Raccoon Straights.  With temperatures on land reaching 95+ degrees, the Bay was definitely the place to be for the day.  Thanks Bill!
