J/Fest West

J/Fest West

A staple of the St. Francis Yacht Club spring series for decades, a fleet of 48 boats were treated to beautiful conditions for J Fest during the first weekend in April. Starting with sunny, cloudless mornings, the StFYC PRO kept the fleet in the confines of the harbor until 11am under postponement. As soon as the first whispers of the seabreeze wafted in under the Golden Gate Bridge, StFYC PRO John Craig sent the fleet out to the starting line just off Alcatraz Island and the magnificent San Francisco city front. The Blackhawk success continued in the J/105 class, as Scooter Simmons with tactician Brent Draney and company held off Jeff Littfin's Mojo by three points after five races. Scooter and crew posted a line of 8-1-1-1-1 for 12 points. Third was Adam Spiegel's Jam Session.   St. Francis YC website
