Michael Booth and Seychelle win the 2018 Battle of the Bay in San Francisco

Congratulations Michael Booth and Seychelle for winning the Battle Of The Bay in San Francisco today.

Michael Booth a.k.a. Boothy (Starboard SUP) was simply too strong in the men’s race, powering away from the field before finishing a minute clear of the highly under-rated Aussie Ty Judson. The Tahitian boys Enzo Bennett and Georges Cronsteadt (Team 425Pro) won a sprint to the line with Connor Baxter, while Josh Riccio and Itzel Delgado were separated by less than half a second.

After finishing runner-up 12 months ago, Seychelle went one better this year. However she was pushed all the way to the line her young SIC teammate Jade Howson, with Fiona Wylde rounding out the podium in the flat but fun conditions.

Here are the top finishers. More to come…
