2009 Ronstan Bridge to Bridge race

I missed the start of the Ronstan Bridge to Bridge race this year, but caught a few pics of the sailors as they were coming in. The race is a 3-way competition between the windsurfers, the Australian 18 skiffs, and the kitesurfers to see who can sail the downwind course from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge in the shortest time.

 

Here’s Steve Sylvester crossing tacks with the Adventure Cat while sailing back upwind after the race.

And here are the kitesurfers taking the fastest way back upwind – a ride in the RIB.
