Intrepid ocean sailor Edward, who is training hard for the John Bertrand Challenge by sailing the 90-mile overnight Spinnaker Cup race from San Francisco to Monterey, California was very near the finish at 4:00 am, local time.
Valis, which had been steaming along at 8-9 knots most of the day was on track to finish around 2:00 am, but ran into very light winds (and probably some adverse currents) just short of the finish. In the wee hours of the morning, they were virtually parked off Lighthouse Point, in Pacific Grove, some five miles from the finish.
I'm going to bed now.
Edward is the little pink dot near the top of the photo, and Pacific Grove's Lighthouse Point is at bottom, in this Google Map/AIS plot of his position at 4:00 am. It wasn't clear why Edward was showing up pink in the photo. He usually wears red foulies.
