Sunday Fun Day: Rick Bowling

Probably a perfect summer Sunday would be a short run on Lake Tahoe before breakfast to see how fast I can go in Gone Again, my 37-foot Talon catamaran then relax and have breakfast on the deck. Then as a family we all go to a beach in the Formula 31 SS and watch the kids swim and eat lunch.

For a perfect spring or fall Sunday, we like to run Gone Again from Pittsburg to Sam’s, a popular waterside restaurant in Tiburon, for brunch then make a short lap in San Francisco Bay and check out McCovey Cove at AT&T Park to see who the Giants are playing. Then we head back to Pittsburg for some freshwater running before we pull out and go home for the day.
