Chris Ray sent in photos of another spectacular, breezy three-day weekend for those who raced St. Francis Yacht Club’s annual Aldo Alessio Regatta and Phyllis Kleinman Swiftsure Regatta. Friday’s Aldo Alessio featured a 22-mile Bay tour with an ocean mark out by Point Bonita and a mix of breeze, sun, and fog.
After Friday’s Aldo Alessio Regatta, the Phyllis Kleinman Swiftsure Regatta kicked off on Saturday with Chris Ray capturing photos from the picture-perfect day of buoy racing on the Bay. StFYC ran three races for three classes — ORC, J/88 and J/105 — with 43 boats racing in all. The regatta concluded on Sunday.
As seen through the lens of Chris Ray, it looked as if everyone was having fun. If you are looking for more weight on the rail or want to be on the rail for next year’s regatta, add your information to Latitude 38’s Crew List. The breeze on the Cityfront requires a full complement of crew to get to the top of the fleet.
StFYC has the full race results available here. See more of Chris’s photos from the event here: https://stfyc.pixieset.com/2022aldoalessioandphylliskleinmanswiftsureregatta.
