a smaller formula fleet than previous years, this year’s SF Classic
was still an exceptional race for the 19 board windsurfing fleet and
17 man kite fleet and as usual experience pays off with fleet veterans
Steve Sylvester and Mike Zajcek taking 2 out of the 3 top positions
in the weekends’ race.
Conditions never ramped up like most expected for Saturday’s long distance
race but that didn’t make it any less of a race for all those trying
to get around the 40 mile + course taking competitors out the Golden
Gate Bridge and down and across the San Francisco Bay to the Berkeley
Pier and then back again.
