Weak wind predictions were upset early in the afternoon by 15 knot winds. As the breeze built with the swell through the afternoon, racers, when not surfing, were whipped around the course, wide eyed with delight. In some cases delight turned to apprehension as lee-side sailors clung to side-ways boats and sea-soaked skippers leaned on their tillers. Conditions exemplified the superb nature of Santa Cruz spring sailing.
Congratulations to all competitors and first place finishers:
Santa Cruz 27: Mistress Quickly; Hanalei
Moore 24: Pegasus
Santana 22: Maybe
