Tech score gave us fits today. Scores will be hand calculated this evening and results at the regatta tomorrow. Williams was a no show. Breeze shut off multiple times and racing started around 2pm with shifty conditions that refused to settle. Two races in A and two races in B with courses W4 and W5 in each division. Williams was a no show.
No tech score today either. I found out that the old style paper method form (I used my last two, were designed by none other than Mike Horn. He prmised to look in his stuff and se if he has a copy. I appreciated it. Halleluia welcome fall! The day was a New England stunner, blue skies with a mini cloud periodically. Breeze was 6-10 with puffs to 14. Courses were shifty, shifty especially at the windward mark. The left would be favoured and the right would erupt with puffs. The right was initially favored with huge pressure on the left winding folks up to the mark. Courses were W4's except for the last B race with a W2 to accommodate awards. Chris Loder elaborated the 15th annual Chris Loder Trophy is his usual unique style reminding all of us that alumni make a difference in so many ways.
Prizes courtesy of Chris and Ronstan were given to each participant at the end of racing, reminding all of us that sailing and graduating moves us into a unique position. To give back to the sport that gave so much to us.
The summary scores follow, leads shifting throughout the day until Vermont began to seal the deal, winning the entire event and the last Reeces race as well. Two teams qualify for the Capt. Hurst on Oct. 13-14 at Dartmouth. Congratulations to Northeastern and Providence for qualifying as they are the two teams from the Loder who have not already qualified.
