Team SBYSF headed north to San Francisco for the second installment of the Opti Harken Series on April 8-9th. Hosted by San Francisco YC and sailed on the infamous Berkley Circle, our sailors we're prepared for a great event.
After a long tow to the Circle, our team tuned up in preparation for race 1. At 1200 noon, sailors were greeted to classic SF conditions with breeze in the high teens and a big ebb tide! Shifty conditions and large chop made for tough sailing.
Day two started with the current velocity > breeze. After our tow to the course our Team stayed anchored on the coachboat to avoid float out to the Golden Gate! After a hour of AP the breeze filled and sailors finished the last four races of the regatta.
At the end of the weekend SBYSF Team Rider Ryan Satterberg displayed superior boatspeed, winning the event with 12 points. Second place had 24. Team SBYSF sailors Oliver Stokke place 6th, and Liam Andresen placed 9th.
