"Berkeley YC welcomes all Bay Area boats to our Friday night series and BBQ," says fleet captain Patrick Hind-Smith. "Call ahead and most likely we can fit you on our guest dock overnight."

The weekend started on Friday for St. Francis YC. "On a clear, sunny day, the breeze filled in early, and we got some strong ebb and pretty gnarly tide lines, for the ocean race portion of the Aldo Alessio Regatta." said photographer Chris Ray. "After starting off of Treasure Island, the IRC fleet headed out to Point Bonita, and then did a Bay tour."

Humdinger, Lawrence Olsen’s yellow Walter Greene 35 trimaran, finished Saturday’s reachy Singlehanded Farallones just after 5:00 p.m., thus winning the Multihull Division. Monohulls are now separate from multihulls for overall honors in SSS races. Dan Benjamin’s Wyliecat 30 Whirlwind, which had an eight-hour day, took the top monohull spot. We’ll have more in the June issue; see in the meantime.

Just minutes after taking this photo, Hilary Walecka saw something fall from the Bridge, and a boring delivery trip turned exciting pretty fast.
