Rolex Big Boat Series Day 1
September 6, 2012
In today's Race 1, the multihulls and IRC divisions are sailing on the Cityfront Course, while the one designs sail on the North Course. The racers have been enjoying nice flat water in a building flood, and a cold, clearing westerly of 12 knots for the first race. Here's what the first race looked like from shore:
Some results for Race 1 are already posted at www.rolexbigboatseries.com/results-alt/results-race-1.
For the second race, a bit of Bay chop is whipping up some little white caps. The wind has built to as much as 20 knots. The IRC and one design divisions have switched places, with the multihulls staying on the Cityfront. But all of them end their afternoon in front of the club for a spectator and camera-friendly finish on this picture-perfect day.

The race committee expects a little south in the breeze and more pressure tomorrow – typical San Francisco summer conditions.
