New Record for Ronstan Bridge to Bridge - Scuttlebutt Sailing News

A southwesterly breeze, flat water and a favorable flood tide allowed racers to push their crafts hard. San Francisco, CA (August 25, 2016) – They say records are made to be broken, and for kiters on San Francisco Bay, that continues to be true. In 18 knots of breeze and a ripping 2. 5-knot flood tide, Italian foil boarder Rikki Leccese today set a new Ronstan Bridge to Bridge record of 10:31, shattering Johnny Heineken’s existing 12:00 record. Thirty-seven adrenalin-fueled craft participated in the 19th running of the Ronstan Bridge to Bridge, which traverses San Francisco Bay from west of the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Bridge. Source:
