An hour into the first leg of the world's longest, toughest ocean kayak race, dorsal fins appeared one by one, then in a flurry until they surrounded us like a shiny gray gang of skinheads emerging from a dark alley. Only a rube from Brooklyn or a paranoid fool would have thought shaaaark -- these mischievous mammals had Flipper written all over them. I've paddled with dolphins in Florida and Hawaii and New Jersey, but I'd never seen so many, so close, or for so long. They were as cheeky as subway mashers and so large that they actually put out a fat wash.

The weather forecast said that there would be a 15kt SE wind by 11am. Finally an opportunity to offer the paddlers some downwind - even if they had to go and get it. However...
