ICSA Women's Semi Final St. Francis Yacht Club & Stanford University May 25, 2009
HIGHLIGHTS: Racing was underway shortly after 10am. The racing area for the first three B Division and A Division races took place between the Golden Gate Yacht Club and Fort Mason. The day started out with a puffy 5-15 knots. The course for Races 4-5B and 4A were set on the City Front just outside of St. Francis Yacht Club. At that point, the breeze built to 20-24 knots with puffs in the higher twenties. After several wipeouts in 4A, the fleet sailed back to the dock after finishing while the course was relocated to the morning's venue. Races 5A, 6-7B, and 6-7A were sailed in 15-20 knots of breeze, starting the last race 8 minutes before the time limit for the day.
Two requests for redress were filed, one was granted. No protests.
Special thanks to PRO Mike Kalin and all Race Committee Volunteers. Thanks to John Vandemoer, Erik Storck, and Brian Stanford for keeping the rotations flowing smoothly. Thanks to Eddie Conrad for doing everything from righting capsized boats to blogging for the event.
