In 1964, it began as the St. Francis Perpetual Trophy Regatta hosting just nine boats, and now, 51 years later, the Rolex Big Boat Series is one of the most prestigious regattas on the West Coast. Over the next four days, 90 world-class teams will sail a mix of buoy and stadium-style races on the ever-challenging waters of San Francisco Bay.
