This weekend (March 29th and 30th) we sent a team to St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco to compete in the St. Francis Intersectional regatta. Sam skippered in Varsity A with Kathryn crewing while Nick skippered Varsity B with Kate. Both days of the regatta there was heavy current, around 4.5 knots flooding and ebbing. The first day of the regatta there was variable winds and heavy rain. A total of 8 races were run on Saturday with 4 in A and 4 in B. There was a 3-hour postponement due to no wind for the first set of the B races, but later the wind picked up again and B sailed their first set and then A sailed their second set. The wind shut off again for the B’s second set but was enough to get two more races in before the end of the day.
Sunday there was much better weather (no rain!) and a lot more wind. There were a total of 5 races run for each rotation on Sunday. Both Varsity A and B teams ended with a total of 99 points each, with an overall score of 198 and 10th place out of 29 teams. It was a great racing weekend and beautiful venue.
