The Notice of Race is now available for the 2020 Rolex Big Boat Series on September 17-20 in San Francisco, CA. Hosted by St. Francis Yacht Club since its inception in 1964, the event is open to J/120, J/105, J/88, J/70, and Express 37 one design classes along with ORR handicap racing with a dedicated classic boats division.
The Classics Division will race the famed Bay Tour course once per day, with starts and finishes off the St. Francis Yacht Club Race Deck, one of sailboat racing’s most iconic settings. Also, the 2020 edition serves as the J/88 North American Championship as well as the Express 37 Pacific Coast Championship.
“We’re continuing to work with US Sailing and the ORR system as a major part of Rolex Big Boat Series,” reports Regatta Chair Susan Ruhne, who is hosting a meeting on March 5 for owners and interested sailors at St. Francis Yacht Club on for a meeting with ORR officials and the StFYC Race Office (details).
Conditions permitting, StFYC will conduct a total of seven races, with two races per day for the first three days of racing, followed by the longer Bay Tour course on the final day featuring a grand-finale finishing line in front of the StFYC Clubhouse.
