2016 Wrap-up

Elan placed 3rd in the PacCup with a time of 10 days, 3 hours.

Golden Moon won the Rolex Big Boat Series and E37 National Championship.

Elan won the 16 boat F division in the Spinnaker Cup.

 

Pac Cup begins today, July 11th.

The Pacific Cup race from San Francisco to Hawaii begins today, with the first in a series of starts throughout the week.

This year the Alaska Airlines class, starting Tuesday the 12th at 11:25, will feature no less than four Express 37’s: Bullet, Elan, One Eyed Jack, and Limitless.

Express 37’s have enjoyed an excellent record in this race with division wins for Elan in 2000/2012, and Bullet taking home the prize in 2008.  With four boats on the line this year it should make 2016 a great one to watch!

2015 Express 37 Nationals report & photos

Big breeze and big fun greeted the Express 37 fleet at this years nationals, hosted by Berkeley Yacht Club.

Racers saw three days of racing with five typically close buoy races and finishes often separated by seconds. Saturday’s second race sent the fleet out and around Pt. Bonita in spectacular conditions, 20 ft. waves and gusts to 37kts made this one that will be talked about for years to come! Boats reported top speeds over 17kts on the ride in… under white sails!

Golden Moon snatched back 1st for the regatta after being bested by Eclipse in the Rolex Big Boat Series two weeks prior. Race organization, hospitality, and food at BYC were top notch, great times had by all!

SFYC Summer Keel wraps up…

Expeditious cleans up with four bullets and a sixth for their first regatta win of the season!

Unseasonably warm temps led many crew to race in shorts and t-shirts… a luxury for SF bay summer sailing. Despite the almost tropical temperatures, the typical sea breeze built both days until genoas were traded for jibs and spray began to cool down hard working crew. Close racing was seen throughout, with a number of overlapped finishes seen throughout the fleet. Fun party afterwards at SFYC too! (The beer was free!)
