Hobie 16 and Hobie 20 North American Championships day 2

Hobie 16 and Hobie 20 North American Championships 2012, hosted by Sausalito Yacht Club, second day delivered lake sailing at its best on San Francisco Bay. The marine layer was weak last night and we had full sun and warmer conditions but not much of a thermal.

The sail out of Richardson Bay to the course was painfully slow this morning. There is a mountain at the entrance to the bay and this creates a big hole with no wind that we have to cross to reach the racing area. We can see the wind line but it's really slow getting to it, then you take off.

There was a short postponement this morning as the fleet had such a slow sail to the racing area. The course was again set just west of Angel Island with the weather mark near the north tower of the Golden Gate. Winds were again from the west but varied from 3 to 18 knots usually all in the same leg. The gate and start finish boat seemed to often be in a big hole but usually it was windy at the A mark. Finding the wind lanes and staying in them was the challenge of the day. The south side of the course typically had much more wind. The AC45's visited us again today and we got much closer view.

In the 16 fleet Enrique (Quique) Figueroa/Christian Maysonet (PUR) continue to lead with all firsts, followed by Francisco Figueroa/Jolliam Berrios (PUR). In 20 class Mark Lewis/Tiffany lewis (USA) lead followed by Phil Collins/Bev Collins (USA).
