The final day of the 2021 Rolex Big Boat Series, hosted by St. Francis Yacht Club, featured long courses for all eight divisions, sending boats into every corner of San Francisco Bay. Clear skies, a steady westerly and the vagaries of current provided plenty of opportunities to mix things up as sailors vied for podium positions, perpetual trophies and—for three classes—Rolex Submariner Date watches. The final downwind run delivered all 78 competitors to a finish line positioned directly in front of St. Francis Yacht Club, where a crowd of spectators cheered from shore. Though Sunday’s DNF broke an otherwise perfect picket fence, John Brigden’s Cool Story, Bro (St. Francis Yacht Club) prevailed to win the J/70 division with 16 points. Taking the bullet in race seven and finishing the regatta with 18 points overall was Geoff McDonald and Scott Sellers’ IFA (St. Francis Yacht Club). Peter Cameron’s Kangaroo Jockey (St. Francis Yacht Club) finished third with 23 points. For complete event details, visit
