April is an exciting month for the Open 5.70 in San Francisco. There have been boats sailing on the bay for a while now but so far all the racing has been PHRF. All that is about to change. On April 18th Tiburon Yacht Club is hosting the first ever one-design start for the Open 5.70 in San Francisco Bay. The race will be part of the Don Wan regatta and there will be 5-6 Open 5.70s on the starting line ready to race around the buoys. Since the regatta is officially only on Saturday, on Sunday the Opens will be participating in a more casual random leg race (more like a parade) around the bay. If you’d like to check out the boats feel free to stop by the Tiburon Yacht Club that weekend. We will also be available before and after the regatta weekend for demo sails feel free to contact us for more information.
After five long days in the sun at the Miami Strictly Sail boat show it was time to go sailing! Since it was Open Sailings first time in Miami there was a lot of buzz around the Open 5.70 and Open 6.50. With one Open 5.70 sold at the show and a long line of people eager to go for a sail Open Sailing were happy to oblige. Based out of the Shake-A-Leg sailing center in Coconut Grove the Open 5.70 was on the water doing demos for 4 straight days. The conditions in Biscayne Bay were ideal – warm blue water, minimal chop, and plenty of wind! Everyone returned the dock with a huge smile on their face after an exciting downwind run where we often saw speeds of 12 knots and above. Since the boat and the bay go together so well we’re optimistic that the Open 5.70 fleet in Miami will grow quickly.
