    F-50 Final Tune Up May 3rd



    The last practice session and a fine one it was!

    Winds 20 knot plus and building ebb made things edgy for teams, especially for the Aussies and China coming off boat damage
    in earlier days.




    Outteridge came out firing and is the boat to beat. Even after a brief slowdown, Team Japan quickly hit warp speed and resumed
    the lead dog position!







    GBR was on Japan's heels all day and "The Roo" showed impressive resiliency. Team USA had some great moves
    and appears to be on the verge of putting it together. France and China showed moments of brilliance as well but,
    this league punishes even small errors....







    The Bay was crowded as well as the parking lot at the StFYC and Crissy Field....
    You can bring your boat in fairly close to action, but you better be on your toes.
    The sailgp people seem to have eliminated any shoreline viewing from the spit, and you will have to pay or be an
    invited guest to watch anywhere east of the StFYC. The docks at StFYC are also crowded with sailgp boats...







    Maybe Ft Mason is the ticket, but get there early... even for a Friday, things were bustling...

    R.C. is a putz, got chased out of NZ with an ugly stick when he jumped ship.

    Thanks!

    Cant believe they closed off the spit.

    So selfish, so irresponsible.

    Thinking Out Of The Box



    Great to watch the two competitors turning around 20 yards next to us on Mist today!
    We were the boat they approached at 1:28:09 into the video....
    They sure are intimidating when their bow is aiming at you sailing at 40 knots - you just
    hope they will avoid hitting you because there's nothing you can do to get out of their way!!
