Regatta Images

For those of you without access to Google Earth, here are some screenshots of the regatta on San Francisco Bay that I wrote about yesterday.

First just to orient you to the location, here is a view from about 17,000 ft. Berkeley Yacht Harbor is on the right of the picture and the yachts in question are the little dots
just to the north-east of the compass rose, about two and a half miles from the harbor entrance.

Zooming in to 2800 ft, here is a closer view of the race. There seem to be at least two different classes of boat.

From closer in, and a different angle. The boats in the center of the picture appear to be rounding a gybe mark. But where are the boats on the left going?
