After a year at the St. Francis Yacht Club, the Lipton Cup trophy will return back to San Diego. The team from SDYC started the day with a 2 point lead over St. Francis Yacht Club and finished 2 points ahead of Newport Harbor Yacht Club for the victory.
Race 6, first of Day 2, began at 1:00 PM in 6 knots of breeze. San Diego Yacht Club had a great start, winning the pin and sailing off into clear air. Annapolis and St. Francis followed SDYC to the left side hoping to get a current boost as the tide ebbed.
Day one of the 2015 Lipton Cup opened in San Diego Bay with competitors from yacht clubs across the US excited to be racing in the beautiful weather. The Race Committee was able to get the first race underway after a 1 hour postponement with consistent winds out of the Northwest at 5-10 knots
