The Great Vallejo Race and YRA Season Opener was treated to some perfect Southern California-like weather Saturday, as the fleet of 250 starters headed north on this annual 21-mile Nor Cal classic. Despite the usual holes — like in the lee of Angel Island — the breeze was reported to be consistently in the neighborhood of ten knots over the course this year.
As of 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, YRA’s Laura Paul was hard at work in the scoring office generating results and waiting for 50 boats to cross the finish line. For full results of both Saturday and Sunday’s 15-miler back to the Bay, check out www.yra.org. If you think you’ve found an error in the scoring, your deadline for filing a discrepancy form is tomorrow at 5 p.m.
