Thursday, August 31 welcomed the 20th edition of the Ronstan Bridge to Bridge Race hosted by the St. Francis Yacht Club with 39 entries: 26 hydrofoil kites, 8 windsurfers and a handful of cats and moths.
In the month of August, your Club staff was busy! There was Vintners Night and Le Diner in the Clubhouse, J/111 Worlds and Hydrofoil Pro Tour on the water and a great employee party at the SF Zoo. And it’s only now September!
As we enter our busiest time of year, Chairman Robin Driscoll provides updated information about the Club’s financials, re-negotiations of sponsorship contracts, new member recruitment efforts and more. He’s also taking requests for Fireside Chat topics.
Last month’s Women’s Sailing Camp welcomed 15 women to a week of learning, fun and bonding on our Tinsley Island. One camper, Cori English, tells us all about the experience and why she believes it changed her life “forever and for the better.”
This past month, Head Sailing Coach Adam Corpuz-Lahne drove the Club’s van and trailer, stacked with a coach boat and two C420s, all the way to Massachusetts to coach our kids in the Buzzards Bay C420 Champs and the C420 National Champs.
