The St. FYC has put together a new downwind slalom racing format to be run on windy Friday nights in lieu of the normal upwind, downwind courses, the formula boards usually sail.

This stands as the 24 hour warning for slalom racing Friday June 13 at crissy field
The forecast looks promising for big breeze and the RC has been set.
If the wind holds through Friday afternoon, as it should, we are on for 5 races of downwind slalom.
See the attached course diagram with the start between anita rock and its buoy & 5 gybe marks to a finish between stfyc and the B buoy (closest to the club)
We'll have a brief meeting at 5pm near the windsock at crissy and the first start at 5:30. 5 races are planned with 1 throwout.
These are fun races so bring what ever gear you have- wave, slalom, bump and jump or even foiling formula boards!
No experience is required but you will need to pre register and have some type of identification on your sail for rc to record your finish.

After racing we'll have a debrief with beers at crissy.
Come prepared.

The Drop-In registration is available here:

Damn I'd love to see that! Maybe I'll get back into kiting again. So are you doing both FW and Kite racing now?

10-12 racers on the line for the 1st friday night slalom race of the season.
Our biggest turn out yet for the year as we usually have 5-6 formula racers for upwind/downwind racing.
We had 18-22k and 5 back to back races.

Race 1 was won by Soheil who had the perfect start at Anita rock squeezing out in front of the pack at the 1st gybe mark. Meanwhile Jason, Jean & myself battled for the next positions around the next few marks before I was able to get past them and put the pressure on Soheil on the last leg but he held on strong for the win.

Race 2- fleet was pushing hard at the start and as a result 4 sailors over early so the win went to CRAD of F4 fins. Sadly my bullet was a bit premature. Still close racing as Jean held the lead till the last mark where I was able to squeeze in and make a better rounding and take the lead.

Race 3-good start with the fleet in hot pursuit breathing down my neck at every mark. Avanti 7.7 & ml 70cm slalom board pulled out of the holes well to extend a good lead on the last 2 legs as a few sailors went down at the H beam. Jason was able to beat the rest of the pack for 2nd.

Race 4- still a good breeze on the course and Anita rock still way favored. The RC called Tim and I over early but we charged on thinking we had the perfect start. Despite the bullet, it was Jason who got the win with the clean start and great marking roundings with CRAD in 2nd.

Race 5- final race of the night. I held back knowing 3 osc's wouldnt be ideal so I came into the 1st mark in the middle of the pack and went down as I stuffed my nose. Meanwhile Jean held on great at every mark with a tight pack of racers looking for any opportunity to get ahead. Each mark rounding had 3-4 sailors overlapped in tight positions and Jean held on for the wind.

Such as great format as everyone was stoked.
A huge thanks to the St. Francis YC and their volunteers for making it happen.
Next possible race is June 27th.
