2013 Three Bridge Fiasco – Successfully finished!!!

Excited for the day

Excited for the day

This was my first time doing the Three Bridge Fiasco race — a single or double-handed race around 3 marks in the Bay: Blackaller Buoy near the Golden Gate Bridge, Treasure Island (Bay Bridge) and Red Rock (Richmond Bridge).  Jason and I did the race on his Cal 29 “TNT” and it was outstanding.  We went clockwise around the course, going from the start line to Red Rock to Treasure Island to Blackaller to finish.  Our official finish time was 14:13:14.

Video of the start of the race from Jason’s GoPro:

Results: We finished 20th out of the 44 boats in our division, and #174 out of the total of 357 boats (monohull and multihull) registered for the race.  252 boats actually completed the race this year, scoring us in the 73rd percentile of finishers.  If we include the boats that didn’t start or finish the race, we scored in the 51st percentile.  Not too bad for our first double-handed race, the first race TNT had done, and both of our first Three Bridge Fiasco race experience.

Jibeset Results:

Fleet Assignments (#20 out of 44 entrants)
Overall Results (#174 out of 279 double-handed monohull entrants)
