San Diego Extreme Sailing Series

The San Diego Extreme Sailing Series occurred between October 19 and 22nd and was best seen at Harbor Island. A little difficult to get to if you have a car but for those of us who live on the bay you could simply bike down the bike path and be there in 15 minutes.

Such races offer a chance to see how well finely tuned teams work together. It draws together professional sailors from the Middle East, Americas,  and Europe. Once can see hydro-foiling catamarans cruising faster than you would expect any ship to go at 20-30 Knots.

Watching these type of racers and going to some of the events if you can find them helps in improving my sailing skills as well as connecting up with people who have mastered the art. they say that if you want to get better then hang out with people who are better than you.
