This is one of the super-fast boats that is racing around Mission Bay this weekend in the San Diego Thuderboat Regatta. I used to live across the Bay from the races and the roar of the engines is something to hear.
Almost four years ago, my husband and I were married on Thunderboat weekend. Unexpected coincidence - we aren't racing fans and chose the date and place before we realized that there was a huge event in virtually the same place as were having our wedding. Our biggest problems turned out to be pretty small in the grand scheme - traffic was messy and though we were concerned that the races would obscure our vows during our outdoor ceremony, the races ended an hour before our ceremony started. And the races provided an interesting photo-op for us! More on that next week.
