Ronstan Bridge to Bridge 2019

Ronstan Bridge to Bridge 2019

Period: Aug 22 - Aug 22, 2019
Location: San Francisco, United States

The Ronstan Bridge to Bridge race has become a tradition in San Francisco, pitting the fastest boats, kites and windsurfers against each other in a drag race to the finish.

Like many great traditions, it started with a bet: a bet between two sailors as to which of their craft could cover the length of San Francisco Bay faster. On the one side were Charlie and Jonathan McKee in their 49er. On the other were the sailboarders. Twenty-seven minutes, eighteen seconds and 5.8 nautical miles later, the McKees proved that the 49er ruled.

Ronstan Bridge to Bridge has become a spectacularly wide-reaching sail-what-you-brung drag race between the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge. Each year the fleet pushes the envelope as to which trending sail-powered device will get you there faster.

The 2019 event takes place on the 22nd of August in San Francisco. For more details, please follow this link.
