So, do you have a watch for sea weed? And do the sail boats get tangled up in the stuff? All assuming Mission Bay is salt water. Looks like a patch floating in the 3rd pic.

The last 2 pics are entrance/exit to get out to the ocean. We didn't go all the way out.

Sail boats dont have to watch for sea weed but I do. You dont want your water inlets on the stern drive to get clogged and overheat the engine. Them sailboats were in a regatta, they have the right of way over powered vessels to I had to thread the needle so to speak and hope one did not decide to tack as I was doing so. I knew I was pretty safe as they usually dont tack when the spinnacer is out and they are going down wind.

Yep, that would be called a jibe when the spinnaker is out. I have always wanted to sail there. Beautiful place! I wonder if the seaweed ever gets stuck on the keels? That would be really slow

That is what I was wondering about?

Seaweed is usually displaced by the hull before it can get to the keel. If you have a crank-up keel, you can drop sails and clear just about any seaweed, flotsom or jetsom. Tongue

I agree on the safe by spinnaker theory. You generally won't typically see a large direction change, such as a jibe, when a boat is running with the wind. However, those racing crews can drop a spinnaker faster than I can write a bad check. When the spinnaker drops, they are going to turn.

Nice pics.

A spinnaker drop does happen fast, then change direction from downwind to upwind. It usually happens around a mark though, not just in the middle of no where.
We did that a few weeks ago and passed 3 boats that were having troubles. The lead boat into the mark dropped their spinnaker in the water, the next 2 boats got tangled in the slow down, we came in, dropped ours, turned and were gone before the other boats recovered. That was a fun race!!

When they dropped their spinnaker in the water, did they yell "Aww, sheet!"? Confused

Nope, but the skipper was yelling other things I dare not repeat here.............Big Grin

Thats the great thing about the guy I race with, he doesnt yell, we just figure it out and go on. That and the boat always seems to go faster the more beer cans are rolling around in it.
