Medium-Range Racing Forecast

With many midwinters series wrapping up throughout the rest of this month, the weekend regattas are back in full swing. Following on the heels of last weekend’s Spring Dinghy, the St. Francis YC’s Spring One Design will see the J/105s and J/120s take to the Cityfront. In the Central Bay, at least 56 boats have entered the Oakland YC’s Rites of Spring on Saturday. Down the coast a bit, the Newport Harbor YC’s Cabo Race has drawn a high-quality 29-boat fleet — one replete with Northern California boats — for the Friday/Saturday starts.

Looking a little farther ahead, the Island YC’s classic, Doublehanded Lightship, is right around the corner on March 26. The following week sees the second installment of the ’11 Singlehanded Sailing Society schedule with the Corinthian Race on April 2. And finally — for now — BAMA’s signature Doublehanded Farallones is up for its 32nd contest on April 9, and registration is already up.
