San Francisco racing: 1976 style

In preparation for this weekends Elvestrom-Zellerbach regatta on the San Francisco city front, a look back at racing 33 years ago around the same course.

Gotta love the yellow foulies and banjo twang.
If you look closely, you can see a huge break @ Ft. Foint around the 16:00 mark.
Some interesting lessons about sailing in the flood and ebb tide in the classic conditions the SF city front dishes out.
