For the Sailors

The Bay may seem like a relatively peaceful body of water, but it's still a place that holds danger, as we are reminded everyday. A mournful salute to the Artemis and to Olympic medalist Andrew Simpson, who drowned when the boat flipped during a training run yesterday.

The catamarans are a joy to watch; I've got more pictures of them training near the Bridge and Treasure Island and hope to catch some of the races this summer. This shot was taken last October when the Makin was docked for Fleet Week.
