The Grand Challenge: Skipper's choice No. 1

Fair skies and light winds made the circumnavigation of Grand Island a great challenge on Saturday. High Noon heads for home in the waning light  (see photo) while Haiku, Optiminium, and Thalia waited for wind south of Taku Inlet. Cetus and Tango gave up after light winds stranded them North of Grand Isle. More race details to come as the reports come in from all the boats.
