After the Rio Vista Events, the pros wanted to sail the SF Bay. Hoping to catch them throwing some sick free style moves, I took my go pro with me. Instead, they all decided to go sight seeing and this is what I caught on film. Enjoy.
My apologize for the foul mouth but it was justified.

Way cool, I'd be freaked out too....those are some big fishies. And some light sailing conditions.

If I were out there, I'd stay well away.
You could bother the whales, come between ma and calf, or upset a young bull....or the Alpha male.
It's nature visiting mankind, so enjoy it, but don't disturb it.
Boy, do I sound like an old conservative fogee.

Actually there was a cool 21-22mph on the water. Most people were schlogging to stay on site.
