We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to participate in event three of the California Dreaming Match Race regatta series hosted by Saint Francis Yacht Club. This event was sailed in J22's immediately off of Saint Francis Yacht Club. On the first day of the regatta, we had significant breeze with an incredible amount of current. This exceptionally significant current was caused by the melting of the recent snowfall in the Sierra Nevada's.
Our first day of sailing was absolutely fantastic featuring several exciting races. We were able to complete a full round on top of a few races from the second round robin. One race in particular, we got so close to the Saint Francis sea wall that we had to gybe away. There was a very creative discussion both immediately after sailing but also during the umpire debrief on when you are allowed to call for room for water. Lets just say the results are still inconclusive.
The second day of sailing was delayed for about an hour due to lack of wind. Around 1PM, race committee lowered AP and we geared up for an afternoon of racing. We finished up the second round robin and ended up finishing fourth overall. We would like to thank all the volunteers for a spectacular event. We'd also like to thank the members of Saint Francis for being so welcoming and putting together such a great weekend of racing.
