The Fleet 5 2017 championship series has been announced. Preparation for the J111 Worlds in August has begun. You can find more information about the J111 Worlds on the StFYC website.
While the 2016 races wrapped up another great season of tight, windy racing, the winter racing season has begun in typical relaxed style. The first GGYC midwinters started with a beautiful day of light winds and big currents on the city front. The SYC racing was smooth sailing in 70 degree weather and flat water. The SBYC opener was on one of our rare rainy weekends. A very lumpy swell in the south bay blew in from Milpitas all night. The race was a huge contrast to the "normal" warm weather winter racing.
We are very excited to launch the J111 Worlds in San Francisco Bay in 2017. August is a great time to race the bay with high winds and tides for very close and tactical racing. Make plans now to attend the J111 Worlds!
We expect 42 races for the 2017 Championship Series and will have 20% throw outs. The Winter Series and the J111 Worlds will not be included in the season championships.
