On Monday, ‘Lectronic Latitude brought you a report and some fab photos of Sausalito Yacht Club’s Tuesday night race. That unusual choice of a weeknight is a key component in making Latitude 38’s Beer Can Challenge possible.
"Well, it looks like there are only two weeks in September that the Beer Can Races line up to be able to race five Beer Cans in five consecutive days at five different yacht clubs," writes reigning King of the Beer Cans, Roger Ruud. "Bay View Boat Club is the only one to race on Monday (San Francisco, 9/4 and 9/18); Sausalito YC is the only one to race on Tuesday (9/5 and 9/19); on Wednesday, it’s Richmond YC or Vallejo YC (9/6 and 9/20); Benicia YC has the only Thursday race (9/7 and 9/21). On Friday, Berkeley YC is the only cub to race (9/8 and 9/22)."
