Rolex Big Boat Series on San Francisco Bay

The four-day Rolex Big Boat Series on San Francisco Bay, started Friday for 107 sailors in ten classes. The wind faithfully filled in as a westerly - light at first but packing a punch, at 18-20 knots, by the end of the day. Two races each in the four handicap classes (HPR, IRC A, B and D), a performance multihull class, and four one-design classes (J/105, J/120, Melges 24 and Express 37). In a fifth one-design class for J/70s, a second set of three races was added to three races from yesterday and began to tell a story of “consistency pays off.”
