Sledding to Hawaii

Original post made by San Ramon Oberver, San Ramon, on Jul 13, 2012

I usually write about San Ramon as the San Ramon Observer (pardon the typo in my User Name here), but this is a story of regional and even national interest.

Alex Mehran, Jr. single-handed his Open 50 sailboat from San Francisco to Hawaii in 8.5 days. Web Link

Read more about it in this week's San Ramon Observer in the San Ramon Express. Web Link

Regardless of what you think of the Mehrans, or Sunset Development, or Bishop Ranch, this young man did an incredible thing.

Of course I throw in a little about my own sailing history, but Hey! It's blog!
