Riding the wake of the Tupelo Honey

November 4, 2006 – 5:43 pm

On a regular Saturday morning SFOCC practice we all headed out on our OC1‘s.  The route was from Sports Basement at Crissy Field, the SFOCC site, to the Bay Bridge and back.  Right about the spot where the large orange pilot boats dock, the sailing vessel Tupelo Honey passed us by.  Omar Manansala, Dean Engle, and I managed to get onto the wake.  We rode all the way to Aquatic Park at Hyde Street.  The skipper, Gerard Sheridan, took some video on his phone and emailed it to me.  I posted an edited video titled “The Ride Of Our Lives” on Google and YouTube.  Enjoy!

  2. Hey Jason, nice video! It’s been a while since I had a chance to say Hi. Good to see you’re still into outrigger. I have just come home to Sydney and am happy to finally be back in a canoe again with Cronulla Outrigger. Unfortunately they have never heard of outrigger in Portugal or Austria, my last two destinations. Give my best to the old novice crew, if any are still around. Happy Days!

    I borrowed your Paddling Popular in the Bay video for my myspace site. Let me know if you have a problem with that.

    Cheers,
    Glenn
