Memorial Day Weekend is fast approaching and with it a collection of traditional regattas. The Spinnaker Cup from San Francisco Bay to Monterey will start the weekend early, on Friday. It also kicks off the inaugural California Offshore Race Week and is followed by the Coastal Cup, which will start from Monterey on Sunday and sail to Santa Barbara. The Master Mariners Regatta starts off the Cityfront on Saturday, criss-crosses the Bay to a finish east of Treasure Island and a raft-up at Encinal YC. Trailer-sailors take to Hwy. 5 bound for a Saturday-Sunday regatta on scenic Whiskeytown Lake west of Redding for the Whiskeytown Regatta. SFYC will run the Easom Founders Regatta for Etchells on Saturday and Sunday.
Registration for the Delta Ditch Run from Richmond YC to Stockton Sailing Club on June 4 is open at www.stocktonsc.org. SSC will give solid metal medalions to all finishers, skipper and crew, again this year. "One thing new for this year is that we are going to also post the finishes using 'downwind' numbers for comparison only," says race chair Tom Lueck. "The official finish and awards will be given out using the regular PHRF numbers. We hope to get more boats and especially larger boats entered so that we can really get an idea of how the downwind numbers compare."
