The Inner Harbour on Saturday morning was alive with activity for the Swiftsure race start -- one of my personal favorites, Dragonfly, is in the foreground in this pic:

Then I drove down to the start line at Clover Point by about 7 a.m., and it wasn't long before the 'parade' of boats coming out of the Inner Harbour started.

This is what a 'start line' for a major sailboat race (over 200 boats!) looks like just before the start gun. The line is actually an imaginary one between those two big military boats:

And they're off!

And an hour later this is what it looked like from along Dallas Road:

Race results, if that interests you, can be found here.

MUCH more later... gotta run, it's Monday morning!
