Traveler before the start of The Border Run April 9-10, 2011

Here is a short video of Traveler and crew, with bagpiper, motoring out of Newport Harbor for the start of The Border Run Yacht Race from Newport Beach to San Diego. If you turn the volume up all the way on your computer speakers you can hear the bagpipe playing, even though the cameraman (Jim Palmer-Thanks!) was a quarter mile away on the bluff top above Big Corona Beach.

We started on Saturday April 9 at noon and finished Sunday morning off Point Loma at 3:07 am. We got Fourth Place in our class (Cruising D) out of 12 boats entered. All together, there were 230 boats entered, more than the Newport To Ensenada Race has nowadays, which is coming up this next weekend.

Special thanks to my capable and fun crew: Barbara Burdick, Tim Richley, Dave Lee, Jim Borgman, Erik Higbie, and of course the Official Traveler Bagpiper Andy Scott.
