Saturday, October 18:
Clear skies and warm weather brought challenging conditions for the 26th Annual Stoney Burke Intersectional. After the competitor’s meeting, sailors stayed ashore until a light breeze filled around 1115. The race committee completed one race in A and was forced to abandon race 2A when the breeze shut off and backed mid-race. After a short on-shore postponement, the race committee restarted racing, eventually completing through race 4B in a steady 7-8 knot westerly (gusting 12-15 knots in races 1B and 2B).
Stay tuned for more racing from San Francisco Bay tomorrow! Many thanks to the Cal Sailing volunteers and sailors for running some great racing in challenging conditions!
Sunday, October 19:
Races were postponed onshore for 3 hours starting at 0930 as we had 0 knots due to a thick overhead fog bank. The fog bank receded at 1230 followed by blue skies and a steady 10-15 knot westerly. A and B divisions were able to sail (2) W/L2 races each before reaching the 1500 Sunday time limit. 26th Stoney Burke had a 46 boat turnout (28 coed/womens varsity and 18 JV from 18 universities). Thanks to our CALIFORNIA sailing coaches, alumni, and undergraduates for hosting a successful and well-executed event.
