28, Pacific Coast Championships - 4 Races, 0 Throwout(s)
Saturday's racing saw the 34 boat fleet run a double sausage course with strategic sailing through the fishing fleet that covered the left side of the course. Many boats used the fishermen as picks to clear lanes and make gains. Sunday saw an unusual northerly send the fleet from the circle past Southhampton Shoals to a weather mark towards the Richmond Bridge. The wind became flukey and compressed the fleet. Race 4 was abandandoned as the westerly and northerly fought it out with no prevailing breeze. Congratulations to all who competed and thank you to the SFYC for hosting and running the regatta. Watch for detailed event and race descriptions (and different points of view) to be provided by various competitors.

Social Scene
Fantastic weather, beautiful setting, beer on the dock, and Mai Taiís (not normal Mai Taiís, but properly construed SFYC Mai Taiís with lots of rum) at the bar. What could have been finer? Friday night Bar-B-Que was available at the Club for those hardy souls who made the Friday evening weigh-in. Bar business was good, and a lot of dock activity with numerous crews 'practicing' at the Corinthian Beer Can Races. Downtown Tiburon business likewise thrived with rumors that the Tiburon crew closed down Servono, but only after emptying their wine cellar. Samís went on late, if the noise generated was any indication. Saturday, after the races, was just great. Seeing little kids on the boats, with the families of the entire crews such as Charade on the lawn is just super. Bar business thrived and the party lingered with the remnants, led by the Larrikin crew, holding court on the deck, ably assisted by Whisper and Hazardous Waste. Someone should ask Eden what the secret to his foot massage is. On to the obligatory visit to Samís for one, only one, libation; off to bed two hours later, oh well! Your scribe collected quotes from the evening, only to find, on Sunday morning, that many were not printable, and others were either illegible or nonsensical. However, if the opportunity presents itself, ask Steve about the potato cannon, or why Esther got locked out of her hotel room, or Estherís reply to Eden (that was a good one!), or just why Julia is marrying Justin, or our own two Aussie born owners as 'The Boys in the Bar. And then there is the story about the Corvette and a $400/month cottage and just who should be driving the Corvette' I could go on. And what a nice Awards Ceremony on the warm sunny dock with excellent hors díoeuves. A great way to end a super fun regatta.
