September 26-27 in San Diego the fastest groups of Monohulls gathered together to find out who was the top of the food chain in sport boat sailing.  South San Diego Bay referred to as just “South Bay” is an ideal place for sailing sport boats.  With air temperature about 76, water temperature at 72, winds 10-15 knots, and sunny skies it is hard to go wrong.  Sailing Anarchy has been organizing this regatta for over a year and had sailors from Vancouver B.C., Seattle Washington, Portland Oregon, and San Francisco California as well as the active Southern California sailors.

There were 3 fleets, Sport Boat A that consisted of 19 boats including 11 Flying Tigers, Sport Boat B 28 boats with the new Open 570’s and Vipers, Sport Boat C the International 505’s.

The racing was tight over 6 races and two days.  Finishes in the fleets were often separated by less than a minute for the top half the fleet making for crowded leeward gates and tricky approaches to the weather mark.  Despite the name of the regatta there appeared to be great harmony amongst the sailors more than pure anarchy.

In Sport Boat A.  The always fast Melges 30 Nemesis showed that not only are they fast they are smart.  Winning not only Class A but winning the Overall Championship.  Nemesis was using 100% Ullman Sails with the Aramid Fiberpath Main and Genoa and a new A-2 Spinnaker.  Geoff Longenecker and crew have been on the winning edge of most of their regattas over the last few years although this goes down as one of the biggest.  Third place was also an Ullman Boat the Cheetah 30 sailed by Steve Molering and Eric Rogers using a GPL jib and Airx A-2.

Ullman Sails was one of the big sponsors and awarded the largest prize, a full day of coaching by Dave Ullman himself!  Dave is one of the highest sought after coaches in the world.  This grand prize was won by Occam’s Razor the Flying Tiger from San Diego, California.
