J/105s Enjoy Swiftsure & Aldo Alessio Regattas on SF Bay

On a day that started grey and not particularly windy, the St. Francis Yacht Club hosted their annual Aldo Alessio & Phyllis Kleinman Swiftsure Regattas for boats LOA >35' or holding an ORR-fully measured certificate. Friday's races involved heading out the Golden Gate to marks out in the ocean. Then, on Saturday and Sunday, the fleet continued sailing in the Phyllis Kleinman Swiftsure Regatta. In Friday’s racing, Chris Kim’s J/105 VUJA STAR took third in the PHRF ToT Division. Over the two-day weekend, Ryan Simmons’ crew on BLACKHAWK won two races and closed with two seconds to seal the deal in the J/105 fleet with just 9 points in five races. Second was the duo of Bruce Stone & Nicole Breault on ARBITRAGE, winning the last race but not enough to reel in BLACKHAWK, finishing with 13 points. Rounding out the podium was Doug Bailey’s AKULA, closing with two thirds to finish third place with 18 points. For event details, visit https://www.stfyc.com/.
