San Francisco Yacht Club - Elite Keel - May 16, 2015
The J-24's were out in forces at the SFYC's Elite Keel Regatta with 12 boats
warming up at their Western Regionals, ahead of their 2015 Nationals to be hosted by the Berkeley Yacht Club May 20th - 24th!
The SFYC had two simultaneous course running over on the Berkeley Circle, working the shifty 12-20 knot breeze which had a lot of SSW in it, making course setting a bit of a challenge.
They did wisely separate the asymmetrical from the symmetrical boats, which kept things on the the up and up and made hairball crossings a tad less eventful.
