You may be interested by this grainy photo: taken just now, shortly after low tide, in the A9 anchorage in San Diego Harbor, where I'm in the hook.

My neighbour, hard aground at every low tide, is Age of Russia, the 1992 Russian hopeful, whose syndicate ran out of coin just before the event.

I don't know who owns her now, but she's got sails, and looks ready to go!Click image for larger version

Unless she can sail at 40-50 knots she has no chance nowadays.

Hope someone cares for her.

:-)

I suspect she's used for trips around the bay: Stars & Stripes is out daily, with a full complement of paying guests. I'll be here for a while, so I'll keep an eye out.

The news of Sint Maarten reminded me...a few years ago we anchored the sailboat there, got a little dressed up and took the dinghy in for dinner. It was pretty windy. Looked back at the boat from shore and thought, "Damn...we're dragging." So we ran back to our boat and re-anchored. It was dark by the time we finished but the next morning it was obvious that if we had kept moving backwards we would have hit two 12 meters that are chartered by tourists. In fact I think Stars & Stripes may have been one of them...there were several built. That would have made the local paper.
