We are in Victoria at the time of the pre-eminent yacht race of the season.  The Swiftsure International Yacht Race.

And they have started and some boats out past Race Rocks and headed out to the location of the old Swiftsure Lightship

I got to the start too late but here is one picture of where the start line was!

Start of the Swiftsure is at Clover Point

Others want to get in on the fun as well

Other wind freeloaders were there for the start

Of course, there is always the night before leading up to the race the next morning.  How many of these sailors will be leaning over the rain but not because of bad weather?
