LOCAL KNOWLEDGE - Three Open 5.70s and one Open 6.50 raced the Frank Guernsey Single-Handed Challenge out of Redondo Beach Yacht Club. It was light breeze but good conditions. Close racing in the Open 5.70 fleet although by the end of the 9 mile race there was quite a spread.
Jerome was first boat across the line on “Chupacabra” an all carbon Open 6.50 and none of the other boats in the race managed to correct. Nik Vale was the first Open 5.70 to cross the line and finished 2nd overall.
