a great day of sailing on the San Francisco City Front. St. Francis Yacht Club Race Committee and collegiate sailors headed out just after the rain let up. We sailed in southwest breeze ranging from 15 to 28 knots. The breeze was puffy and ticky tack. We sailed Windward/Leeward courses all day with long offset legs. With an ebb tide/cross course current in the morning and flood tide/cross course (3kts) in the afternoon the offset legs were set long to square up the beats and runs. A rig broke, a couple pintles, and a speader. Packs of boats were fully planing at any given time. We completed four races in each division and finished up around 1600hrs. The UCSB Gauchos sailed a strong day with their B Division boat throwing a few bullets up on the board. Hawai'i Rainbows and Washington Huskies rounded out second and third positions for the day.
A cold north breeze ushered in the morning on San Francisco Bay. With gusts to 25 knots right off the bat, the St. Francis Yacht Club Race Committee set up in between Alcatraz, the Golden Gate, and the Palace of Fine Arts. The fleet headed out hoping to make it to the course by 1000hrs and the Race Committee started promptly at 1000hrs. Fortunately there was a small windshift at twenty seconds to go and the AP Flag flew for a few minutes while the rest of the fleet made their way out. The first two sets were sailed in the northerly with ebbing cross-course current. Again with long offset legs and starboard roundings the courses were interesting and square. The breeze shut off for twenty minutes and then filled from the west. We got two and a half more sets in the westerly with a building parallel flood. By the end of the day it was flooding hard and blowing in the twenty knot range. The battle was on between UCSB and Hawai'i with Coast Guard on the climb. With flood on shore and late ebb outside the teams were definitely gambling. Flood relief on shore or a small taste of ebb if you sailed out. In the end Hawai'i pulled off the win in the cold conditions with UCSB second and Coast Guard Bears in third. Women's Division was won by Coast Guard. Thanks to all of the race committee volunteers, jury members, coaches, sailors, team leaders. See you next year.
Teams listed as a school's second team are their women's division.
