Posted Tue 01 Jul 2008 12:00am The morning started off with a threat of thunderstorms, high humidity, thick fog (which delayed the start by an hour) and a water temperature of 55 degrees (and my new Rudy Project glasses broke).

It is in that last 30 minutes before midnight their all of the ... Read on »
