J/70 Rolex Big Boat Series


Recommended Posts

The 49th edition of the Big Boat Series will feature the debut of J/70's sailing in front of the St Francis YC this year.  This is an exciting development for the J/70 class!
For the first race of each day J/70's will start off the StFYC Race Desk and sail up and down the city front.  For the second race the fleet will start off of the new starting line immediately west of Alcatraz Island and sail to a windward mark that could take them outside the bridge depending on conditions or to marks set just inside the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge near the famous Blackaller Buoy.
Coolest thing of all?  The J/70's will have a rip-roaring downwind finish in front of the StFYC club each day!  If you've been watching the America's Cup 72's flying down the waterfront, imagine doing that in a J/70 in 15-25 kts of breeze each day!  More fun than a "barreul full of monkeys"!
We anticipate 10 boats for their first sanctioned J/70 One-Design Regatta on San Francisco Bay. Learn more about this exciting event here- http://www.rolexbigboatseries.com/
