The inaugural San Francisco J/105 Women Skipper Invitational took place this past Sunday on San Francisco Bay, hosted by St. Francis Yacht Club.

Eight women skippers participated in the short course, windward-leeward, three-race format. Sailing in perfect SF Bay conditions, the winds started in the 12-14 kts range from the WSW and ramped up into more typical SF Bay conditions with 16-20 kts by the third race.

The idyllic weather made for the very close competition on the water.

Ultimately, the event was won by Nicole Breault and Team ARBITRAGE (with Nicole's husband Bruce Stone at mast/squirrel), followed by Kristin Mayberry and Team BLACKHAWK in second (with Kristin's husband Ryan Simmons taking a lot of waves at the bow), and Chloe Lepert and Team AQUAVIT in third.

Here is the pre-regatta promo video that introduced the skippers and included interviews with several SF Bay J/105 owners about their thoughts on owning and racing a J/105.
