Plenty of action in July on the San Francisco City Front Venue

The 2018 Laser Masters North American Championship will be sailed July 20-22 on the waters in front of the St Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco, Ca. This is the same location as the 2011 Laser Master Worlds and the St Francis Yacht Club has fully committed to making this again the top event for Laser sailing in 2018. Racing will be on the world famous “City Front” course, right in front of the windows of the yacht club making for not only top level racing but also spectacular viewing from the comfort of the club for your family and friends. There will also be post racing events after each day of racing featuring plenty of food and beverages, including wines provided by the Laser Class’ own vintner - Emilio Casetlli.

For those who want to come out a few days early, the St Francis Yacht Club is taking advantage of the Master NA’s to run its world famous Heavy Weather Laser Slalom! This will occur the two days immediately preceding the Master NA’s, July 18-19, and it is planned to feature a “Masters only” division this year. This event was last run in 2011 and many of you will have seen the video made from that event (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vimGNNKVlNw). Peter Shope came up through the loser bracket to take that year’s event from Ben Richardson in a thrilling set of final races - Ben is planning is comeback this year but maybe someone receiving this email will be there to prevent it from happening?

For the truly hardcore, the open Laser North American Championship will be sailed at the Alamitos Bay Yacht Club in Long Beach ending the Sunday before the Laser Master NA’s and this could be a good tune up event for the real championship at St Francis. For those a bit less hardcore but wanting to make a vacation of a trip out west, the Laser Masters PCC’s will be held the weekend after the Laser Master’s NA’s around the corner from Richmond. This would allow a week of touring the Napa Valley, or a trip to Monterey, or even to Yosemite during the intervening week.

The NOR for the 2018 Laser Master’s NA’s has been posted and registration is open. You can find the information at the St Francis Yacht Club’s website.

More information on charter boats will be available soon.
