Welcome Yacht Maserati to the San Francisco Bay


70 Foot Yacht Maserati 
Sets World Record with 47 Days, 2 Hours and 33 Minutes.
For Single-Hulled Sailing Vessel
Sailing from New York to San Francisco 
on the historic Route d'Or established in 1854 
by "Flying Cloud" with 89 days and 20 hours.
So I meant to greet "Maserati" under the Golden Gate Bridge, but she arrived early!
A fireboat escorted her under the Golden Gate Bridge but shortly a flotilla of yachting aficionados, photo boats and cheering fan laden chartered vessels surrounded her as she crossed the finish line which is between Alcatraz and Coit Tower.
I was on a photo boat graciously provided by Paul Dines of SFBayAdventures.com .
Captain Giovanni Soldini invited me on board the yacht "Maserati" after crossing the finish line. Yes, that was a good day for me.
