  • 2017 SFYC Resin Regatta

    77 boats in 7 one design classes ( 21 J-105's, 6 Melges 24, 4 Etchells, 9 Express 27s, 6 J-24s, 20 Knarrs, and 11 Folkboat)
    registered for the 2017 SFYC Resin Regatta, the YC's annual invitational to resin aficionados and converts.

    With just a few AWOL boats, the participants enjoyed a spectacular weekend on the bay with wall to wall sunshine, warm temps
    and breezes in the mid to high teens.

    An ongoing mountain runoff continues to influence the currents in the SF Bay, with the Berkeley Flats being no exception.

    With a westerly blowing and a flood tide running throughout the race times, water entering into SF Bay from the Delta
    seems to get shunted south towards the South Bay messing with conventional wisdom of local knowledge. Those aware of
    the 1-5 to 2 knot southerly flow benefited greatly when seeking passing lanes and rang up low scores on the tally sheet.

    While the were delays waiting for the westerly to build, the wait was worth the consistent winds that ensued.
    With 3 races scheduled for Saturdays contest, a slight hiccup occurred whiles moving marks for the 3rd and final
    race of the day when the mark boat wrapped the buoy rope around it prop. Ooops!

    With race 3 abandoned the crews settled for 4 races and great close racing in all classes.
    The winners of each division are as follows:

    J-105: Arbitrage Bruce Stone

    Melges 24: Wilco Doug Wilhelm

    Etchells: Mahalaga Peter Vessella

    Express 27: Peaches John Rivlin

    J-24: Shut Up & Drive Val Lulevich

        If next weekend is 1/2 as nice this past weekend, it will make the Vallejo Race Great Again!
