Black Magic sets sail on race day.
The fleet heads north between Kettle Top and channel marker 30. Yes, that's a Hunter 26 in the lead!
In the middle of the fleet, Black Magic leads Black Swan.

Near channel marker 16: Black Magic, left, is catching up to Black Swan, center, with white spinnaker, and Kachina, right, with turquoise spinnaker. The weather overhead is virga, rain that evaporates before it reaches the ground, causing sudden, sharp, unpredictable bursts of wind.
