America at San Diego Yacht Club 2013 opening day
The San Diego Yacht Club always has quite a party during their seasonal sailing opening weekend. This year was no exception and as is usual our beautiful yacht ‘America’ was at the main dock for the day where at the official opening moment the crew raise our huge Stars & Stripes American flag. Of course you should always have your video camera ready when that happens. Accompanied by cannon fire and lots of gunpowder smoke this year’s flag raising was no exception…..just a really great few moments in time. Cannons and smoke were compliments of the Maritime Museum of San Diego vessel ‘Californian’, also at the main dock stern to stern with America’. What a great day!
