Arbitrage Wins The Aldo

The Aldo Alessio Regatta is one of the highlight events on SF Bay each summer. This year J105 Fleet One opted to skip the Friday ocean race, contesting windward leeward races in the Central Bay and City Front over the weekend. Wind and weather co-operated to provide two ideal days of racing with breeze from about 10 kts to 18 kts both days. Awkward, puffy and more southerly wind direction than usual, coupled with a complex switch from slack to ebb during the race, made for interesting tactical choices on the course. Arbitrage dominated, winning the first and last race and finishing 8 points ahead of Godot, who bested Donkey Jack  on a tie breaker for second. Following-on were Blackhawk in an unaccustomed fourth spot with Alchemy and Roxanne close together in fifth and sixth place.
