We have it on good authority that San Diego Yacht Club will soon announce a major revision to the format of the Friday Leukemia Cup Race the afternoon before Yachting Cup.  Expect to see the end of ratings buy downs and a modified version of the Hot Rum format of inverted start pursuit race.  There is even consideration to a later start than the tradition 11:30am for the weekend which would be much appreciated by out-of-town teams.

This new Friday race (May 1) should be much more appealing to serious racers and a great way to get the crew there and in practice before the racing on the weekend!  Keep your calendars clear.
