[Source Sailing World] The opening day of the San Diego NOOD saw 79 boats in 6 classes hit the water for two or three races in a light to moderate westerly breeze and some extreme swell. While San Diego is known for benevolent westerly breezes and a gentle rolling ocean swell, today's wave action was well above normal, especially for the Beneteau 36.7 and Flying Tiger 10 Meter classes, which raced southwest of Point Loma and experienced swell running in excess of 10 feet. - By Stuart Streuli
