St. Francis Yacht Club

San Francisco, California

Founded 1927


St FrancisThe St. Francis Yacht Club was founded in 1927 and has been an active participant and leader in a broad spectrum of yachting interests ever since. The club’s 2010 race schedule included over 110 days of racing with world championships for Finns and Melges 32s, national championships for sailboards, other regional events, and the signature Rolex Big Boat Series.


St. Francis Yacht Club will be sending a younger but very experienced team to compete in the Resolute Cup this year. Skipper will be Mateo Vargas who has sailed in events such as the radical division of the Laser National Championships and Team Racing National Championships. The team’s tactician will be Kevin Laube who has also sailed in multiple team racing events and took home third at one ICSA Team Race Nationals. Vargas and Laube have sailed together in multiple events, which may be the advantage they need in such a tight fleet. Since the event provides one of the most level playing fields in the sport of sailing, and rewards teams that come in prepared but can also learn and adjust on the fly, we expect that this team will do very well as St. Francis Yacht Club comes back for the third time to this event.
