Mendums Invitational


Saturday, October 9:

Well, Saturday brought beautiful sunny skies and wind, lots of wind. Breeze registered from 15 to 20 with occasional momentary lulls between 8-10. When gusts ranged from 25-33 mph on my handy dandy wind meter, multiple capsizes were occurring and competitors were struggling to come downwind as well as go upwind the event was canceled. Lots of wet and weary sailors. Only two races were able to be run in our brand new Zim built FJ's meaning that the event was not deemed an official regatta.

The boats are very sweet and have radian cut sails with a fat head. Even instructing competitors to watch the vang and ease the main more to depower was not adhered to. Boats are sleek and fast, we didn't have time to drag all the lines as boats and sails were brand new, so some slippage was evident.

Thanks to the UNH Sailors who helped run this event.
