snkp360, My stepdaughter was coxswain for a women's 8, won gold in her HS freshman year at Saint Ignatius in the Regionals. Then in college (CSLB) she cox'd men's 8 and men's 4, placed 8th at Nationals in men's 4 (sophomore/junior year??), then after their stroke graduated they placed 12th at Nationals. This all ended in 2008 when she graduated. So I know that 2km long lagoon well. Who did you row for, and how long ago?
BTW, 'Larry's America's Cup Trimaran' at Oracle is a monohull actually, this 24-meter IACC boat was campaigned in 2006, I believe, when BMW and Allianz both sponsored...to illustrate and perhaps thrill competitive sailors like me:
Good stuff, from the bokeh backgrounds all I had to compare on was the paint scheme and side profile
I rowed for Serra High School from 2000-2003 and was the captain/stroke of the Varsity 8, Lightweight 8 and Lightweight 4. Senior year my Lightweight 4 took 3rd at Regionals in Folsom.
After high school I decided to forgo crew, mainly because Cal Poly - SLO didn't have a team, and joined the water ski team LOL
