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 http://www.richmondyc.org/.
