Richmond Yacht Club in Richmond, CA every spring hosts the Big Daddy Regatta. On Saturday, the various PHRF handicap and one-design fleets enjoy up to three quick windward-leeward races. Then, on Sunday the pursuit race takes place with the smallest/slowest boats starting first in the morning and the fastest boats starting much later. For Saturday's buoy-racing, the fleet enjoyed good breezes, and the Richmond YC PRO managed to run three races.
Winning PHRF A Division of seven boats was Peter Wagner's J/111 SKELETON KEY with a 2-1-1 tally for 4 points. Six points back with a 6-2-2 for 10 points was Nesrin Basoz's J/111 SWIFT NESS. For Sunday's Pursuit Race, the two J/111s sailed well to both finish in the top ten in a fleet of 74 boats. Wagner's SKELETON KEY was in fourth place, followed by Basoz's SWIFT NESS in seventh place.
