Day 3 - Hobie 16 and Hobie 20 North American Championships 2012 © www.pressure-drop.us
Hobie 16 and Hobie 20 North American Championships 2012, hosted by Sausalito Yacht Club, third day delivered 75 degrees, full sun and 15-25 knots of wind. San Francisco Bay provided amazing sailing conditions today with epic views of Alcatraz and the San Francisco city front.

Racing started at approximately 11:30 AM in 15 knots. The wind increased as the day went on with the third race of the day sailed in 20-25 knots. We had a strong flood tide all day and starting was a challenge, with most of the fleet dip starting. USA76 from the last cup and AC45 Red Bull visited us on the course today. Competitors all got a close up on the AC45 as they crossed the course.

In the 16 class Enrique Figueroa/Christian Maysonet (PUR) continue to dominate with nine bullets followed by Francisco Figueroa/Jolliam Berrios (PUR). In the 20 class Mark Lewis/Tiffany Lewis (USA) continue to lead followed by Phil Collins/Bev Collins (USA)
