- Just passing this along. Dust off your small watercraft, your vessel of choice. - Chris
Bayview to Breakers: a Ragtag Regatta (2nd annual)Saturday, August 15th, 2009 at India Basin Shoreline Park .Celebrating free public access to the Bay and the maritime history of India Basin and the southeast shore of San Francisco , Bayview to Bre akers is an urban flotilla of manual powered watercraft. If the land-lubbers in small towns on small waters in America 's heartland can have watercraft celebrations, so too shall the City by the Bay.Calling all weathered, barnacled sea captains and rubber-legged would be skippers. Summoning all persons with non-motorized, manually powered vessels, from the finely handcrafted to the roughly hewn, from the Bay worthy to the "as yet determined." From the innovative and inventive, to the overly ambitious. To all the works-in-progress waiting to be plied to the open water. Shake off your summer fog -- this is your day in the sun and water. San Francisco 's sunny southeast waterfront is home to the finest weather to be found in summertime.
