San Francisco is arguably one of the world’s best venues for sailing with jaw dropping views of boats racing on the city front and the Golden Gate Bridge as a backdrop. The inaugural International 6 meter Invitational Regatta hosted by St. Francis Yacht Club is under way. Our illustrious scribe Snapper is sailing and will have a post-regatta report once racing is completed on Friday.
While there are no active ‘sixes’ on the bay, boats have traveled from Vancouver, Seattle, San Diego and Rhode Island, to slug it out on a great race track that typically offers up conditions that are on the upper edge of these boats capabilities.
Fleet Week in San Fran is going to make things interesting for the racers Thursday and Friday, but this photo, taken from ‘Frenzy’ shows the beauty of these old gals and the venue. Title inspiration thanks to these guys. (when was the last time you heard guitar like this? – ed)
