We didn’t realize that working with Scot and the CYC would be such a big job this weekend, but we have to admit that every minute was worth it after an awesome three days of racing in near-perfect summer conditions out of Coronado Yacht Club in San Diego’s South Bay. 70-odd boats from Weta trimarans through J/125s had an absolute blast, with 10 races from Friday to Sunday, racing like boats on short courses for constant action and adrenaline from start til finish.
Check back later for a full front page story on the event, but in the meantime, big congrats to the Melges 30 Nemesis for cleaning up Sportboat A, to the T650 Flight Risk for Sportboat B, Anarchy in the FT-10, Harbor Sailboats in the FT-7.5, Chris Winnard in the Viper 640, and to Howie Hamlin (5O5), Mike Leneman (Weta), and Adam Lowry ( Moth) for winning their classes and getting some great prizes from West Marine. And check out the awards ceremony to see what a real pickle dish looks like! Full results are here, and thanks to Meredith Block for the photo. – Mr. Clean.
