VALLEJO GREAT RACE!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first mention of an race came in 1925, when PICYA organized a cruise from Berkeley to Vallejo on a Saturday to be followed by a race back on Sunday. This is probably the official origin of the Great Vallejo Race, now reputed to be one of the largest inland regattas in the United States, usually drawing 200+ boats annually. Now under the aegis of the Yacht Racing Association, the two day race marks the official opening of the San Francisco Bay racing season.
