Blackhawk Wins Swiftsure Regatta

Blackhawk Wins Swiftsure Regatta

The Swiftsure Regatta is a classic city front event that takes place along the San Francisco city shoreline, just south of Alcatraz Island. The regatta is well attended by the local J/105 fleet on San Francisco Bay. Scooter Simmons' son, Ryan sailed and skippered Blackhawk to the overall win in the J/105 class. They won by a whisker, beating Jeff Litfin's Mojo crew on a tie-breaker. Starting with a 1-3-1, Simmons' crew nearly lost it all by taking a 10th in the last race to Litfin's first. Blackhawk took the tie-break on most firsts. Third, just three points back was Jason Woodley & Scott Whitney on Risk followed by Bruce Stone's Arbitrage then Doug Bailey on Akula in fifth.   Complete results
