Three days of Pac52 Class racing amongst a dozen other one design and PHRF fleets, followed by two nights of Cal Yacht Club parties and trophy ceremony.
The final day of the 2018 PAC52 Season Opener brought yet another sun splashed afternoon on the South Course of the Coronado Roads sailing area. The sea state had increased slightly overnight yet the unstable air mass that plagued the prior day had given way to a more predictable NW wind with far fewer holes and much less shifty conditions. Another positive, the kelp patches that plagued the area the last two days had lessened substantially.
Nothing says Happy Cinco d’Mayo like close knit racing on the Coronado Roads area off San Diego Bay on 5 PAC52’s under glorious sun with the local Mexican fisherman interrupting the vhf signal with some fine mariachi music and a chorus of “aye-ayeaye-ayes”.
The marine layer had returned to the area overnight and breeze began early in the am from the northwest, blessing the course with 12-15 knots by the 1st gun. The PAC52’s would share the course with a number of other fleets today, notably the low raters of Division A and J-120’s.
