The annual fall bacchanalian festival in San Diego known as the "Hot Rum Series" took place last weekend, hosted by the San Diego YC. A fleet of 136 boats is participating in the series of three weekend races that take place on Saturdays.

The race is a simple pursuit style event, where the slowest boats start first and the fastest boats start last; whomever crossed the finish line first boat-for-boat is declared the winner. As has been the case over time, the building sea breeze often benefits the bigger faster boats that start late. In last weekend's event, that was certainly true for most of the classes.

In PHRF 2 Class, the J/120s led the way home, with John Laun's Caper winning with Ernie Pennell's Mad Men second by just one minute 40 seconds behind. Fifth was the J/124 Cirrus.

In the PHRF 4 Class, it was Steve Wyman's J/70 Nunuhunu that took second, followed by Dennis Case's J/105 J-OK in fourth, Erostino Dagfish's J/105 Viggen in sixth and Dave Vieregg's J/70 Soggy Dollar in seventh.

Then, in PHRF 5 Class, it was David Cattle's J/27 Blackadder in fourth position.
