We're All Following a Moon Shadow

Ad for March 1994

Moon Shadow, Jack Scullion's 38-foot Morgan, is sensibly rigged for single-handed and family cruising. But Jack can't pass up the chance to compete in single-handed race events -- like the Singlehanded Sailing Society's Three Bridge Fiasco. A popular race with over 250 double- and singlehanders, the competitors are required to round Crissy bouy at the Golden Gate Bridge, Treasure Island under the Bay Bridge, and Red Rock near the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge - in any order, from any direction, starting and finishing in front of the Golden Gate Yacht Club.

Jack sailed Moon Shadow into first place in the 40-boat singlehanded division. And he did it by going the wrong way.

Leaving Alcatraz to starboard after the start, he looped around Treasure Island, met the fleet head on at Red Rock, followed the bread crumb trail through

Raccoon Straits, then sailed for Crissy buoy and on to the finish.

So how can Jack sail the wrong direction and still win?
Give us a call. We have the answer.
