Close Racing at The Great Pumpkin Race

Over the Halloween weekend, the Richmond Yacht Club hosts its annual Great Pumpkin Regatta over two days in the northeastern part of San Francisco Bay. It is a popular event with costume parties. The J/24s had tight racing for the top five with everything depending on the outcome of the last race. Winning was Darren Cumming’s DOWNTOWN UPROAR with 5 points, followed by Jasper Van Vliet’s EVIL OCTOPUS in second with 7 points. Third was determined by a tiebreaker on 10 points each, with Paul Ravenswaay’s FERAL ROOSTER taking the bronze on countback over Val Lulevich’s SHUT UP & DRIVE! Fifth was Richard Stockdale’s FROG LIPS. For more The Great Pumpkin Regatta information, visit
