They are now hosting a fundraising campaign to add your name on the stern of their brand new Canadian Olympic Star boat from now until the Olympic Games. They need 2012 names to take to the 2012 Olympic Games! Click here for details.

While San Francisco is famous for its strong summer winds, the winter sailing conditions are quite the opposite. With a building ebb and very light air, this Cal 20 team dropped a hook to maintain position. Photo by Erik Simonson.
