— SPRING FORWARD
aylight Saving Time sprung early this year, and so did spring-like weather. Bay sailors are no dummies — when they get the chance to sail under fog-free and sunny skies, they jump on it. Boats came out in droves on March 10, the lovely day we snapped these shots, presumably to make up for the hour they were about to lose. In fact, most of March seemed more like summer than, well, summer. If the trade-off for losing an hour of sleep is weather like this, we'll take it! — latitude/ld Spring forth and mulitply — insets, l to r, 'Sequestor' ketches the wind; on a day like this, 'Sea Angel's crew is all smiles; 'Encore' sees red; Raccoon Strait provided a perfect course for an unofficial race between 'Mabrouka' and 'Breezy'. Spread, 'Arowana's skipper enjoys a solo sail in the afternoon sun.
