Looking Forward to Yacht Racing in February

San Francisco Bay Area in February

Some midwinter series will wrap up in February. They include the Berkeley Midwinters (with one last full weekend, February 12-13, and a Winners Race on February 27). The RegattaPRO Winter One Design Series will finish up on the 12th. Corinthian YC will sail their second of two midwinter weekends on February 19-20.

On February 13, the San Francisco J/105 Fleet 1 Doublehanded Series will conclude.

The Singlehanded Sailing Society’s 2022 season will continue on the 26th with the SSS Corinthian Race. We’ll have photos from the first race in the series, the Three Bridge Fiasco, in a ‘Lectronic post this week, and much more in the March issue of Latitude 38. We’re still processing hundreds of photos (our own and our readers’). In the meantime, here’s a teaser.

Moore 24 start
The Moore 24 start at Saturday’s Three Bridge Fiasco. The clockwise direction appears to be favored in this fleet, but that turned out to be the wrong way to go. Out of the 25 Moores that started, 15 were able to finish despite a huge ebb and a flagging northerly. The Singlehanded Sailing Society has posted results on Jibeset.

Southern California

Spanning two full weekends on February 12-13 and 19-20 the SCYA Midwinter Regatta is an expansive undertaking. Diverse classes, from remote-controlled model yachts to Sabots to PHRF and one-design fleets, will compete in six SoCal areas. Twenty-two yacht clubs share the hosting duties.

The following week another multi-club endeavor, the Islands Race, will sail 142 miles from Newport Harbor YC to San Diego YC. The course goes around Catalina and San Clemente islands.
