Coming Up

Registration is closed for the Vallejo 1-2 on October 21-22. The SSS promises a "great reaching start and then a spin run to Vallejo with a raft-up dinner."

StFYC's Fall Dinghy Regatta is also this weekend; fortunately it doesn't conflict with Richmond YC's Great Pumpkin this year. That regatta is on October 28-29. The theme is Summer of Love.

San Francisco YC will host the Leukemia Cup on October 22. If you can't make the race in person, consider donating to one of the teams doing fund-raising. See www.leukemiacup.org/gba.

Due to the unhealthy air quality resulting from the devastating fires in the North Bay Area, the Tiburon Yacht Club Race Committee decided to postpone the Joan Storer Women’s Regatta until Saturday, November 4. "This race is for everyone: no woman skipper available? That’s OK, you just need the composition of crew to be 50% female," writes TYC race chair Cam Tuttle. "Trophies will be awarded in each division, and this race will be sponsored by the Storer family with a hosted bar and food. Get your crew of gals and guys and come on out and race." Sign up on Jibeset.

Registration is now open for a re-invented classic triplehanded woman skipper race, the Inaugural Jill & Jack + 1 Race (formerly Jack & Jill + 1), Sunday, November 5, on the Alameda/Oakland Estuary. "What better way to finish off a 49-hour weekend?" ponders the host club, Island YC. (Pacific Standard Time resumes that day.)

The SSS has set a tentative start date for the 2018 Singlehanded TransPac of June 22.
