Scuttlebutt Video of the Week
May 13, 2011

With so many Optimist sailors in the U.S., the United States Optimist Dinghy Association each year must host a Team Trials to help in the selection of who can attend the international events on behalf of the country.

The 2011 trials were held on San Francisco Bay May 4-7, in full view of the Golden Gate Bridge... and the wind gods. The four day regatta provided the 172 sailors with 12 races of spring conditions on the Bay.

While it was a bit early for the nuking winds typically found in the summer, it looks as if there is plenty on in this video.
