    2020 YRA/EYC Bonita Race Finally A Go!



    A quick upload of images from Saturdays YRA/EYC Bonita Race, formerly known as the 2nd Half Opener,
    which was postponed twice, once due to the ongoing pandemic then after a thick, nasty layer of smoke
    inhabited the Bay Area. This edition finally was run in double handed form with a couple single handers tossed in the mix.
    Decent breeze and a good ebb took the boats up to and out of the gate in a a rapid fashion with a southerly component due to an incoming
    front, which stayed, for the most part over the Marin county area throughout the race.

    additional imagery and verbiage to follow...

    A few video clips trail from near the finish area.
    The finish was off R6 at the entrance to the Alameda Estuary.
    Port View Park, Oakland, has a fishing pier
    and a paved walk by the water.

    A few more selects from Saturday. A fuller selects gallery can be seen at HERE!
    Still much more editing to do in that regard...



    Skeleton Key (Peter Wagner / Nick Gibbens) The J-111 is very familiar with top podium spots, but the DH
    thing is a newish gig for Peter and Nick...




    Raven (John Kernot / David Hodges} & Pegasus ( Stephen Lewis / Patrick Lewis)
    Dueling past Bonita, a match race to the bitter end with Raven beating Pegasus by a mere 3 seconds corrected




    Punk Dolphin (Jonathan Livingston / Helen Babalis) Because, who doesn't like Punks or Dolphins?



    MC Irene (Will Paxton / Julia Paxton) They sailed away from the the e-27 fleet to claim yet another
    top podium spot!



    Smokin (Michael Andrews / Tom Rankin) Win the DH Sporty Spin 1 group by a healthy margin!



    Pork Chop Express (Chris Jordan / Charlotte Jordan) Have no problem in the DH non kite 2 or meeting
    the in house rule



    Green Buffalo (James Quanci / Stephen Quanci) Were not only the greenest boat over 40'
    but the winningest father and son duo in in DH Spin 4



    Eight Ball (Scott Easom) Won the SH Kite division uncontested!



    Bombora (Rebecca Hinden / John Hansen) take 2nd in the E-27 division and will make your
    boat go faster! www.pacificrigging.us



    The finish! Jeststream (Daniel Alvarez / Robert Blackmore) Chase down the C&C 115 Raven
    and take 2nd in DHSport Spin Type 1... Daniel has relocated to Iowa but heart and boat remain in SF,
    and Rob flys in from Seattle to race!
