MCSA Single Handed Championship


Saturday, October 6:

Saturday's Single Handed Championship started in the low 40s with breeze building from the N, NW. Boats were on the water by 10 a.m. with puffs in the excess of 20 knots. The breeze continued to oscillate throughout the day, clocking back and forth within a range of 50 degrees to either side of constant. By 1 it began to die down, and competitors came off the water for a lunch. It was brief, however, as the temperature began to rise, ushering in another up-cycle of breeze. 12 races were sailed. No protests were filed. As it stands, 6 more races will be sailed tomorrow for 2 qualifying berths from the MCSA. Special thanks to the Northwestern University Sailing Team members volunteering on and off the water all day. An extended thank you goes to Rick Lillie of Chicago Yacht Club, our PRO for the weekend, and Chief Judge Dennis Bartley.

Sunday's Single Handed Championship started with temperatures in the high 40s with thick cloud clover and breeze from the N, NW. We pushed for a 9:30 beach launch. First warning signal was at 10. The breeze oscillated with speeds of 15-20 knots. Swells came in from 2-4 ft. The breeze continued to oscillate and eased after the first four race. The course was shortened to maintain a race time of 20 minutes. By 12:15 the breeze clocked left, and the course was changed before the 17th race. The wind finally slowed to 5 knots, and the day ended with a total of 18 races. All competitors sailed in at 1:00. No protests were filed. One redress was filed and withdrawn by the competitor. Congratulations to our two MCSA qualifiers Andrew Fox, '13, of University of Wisconsin and Chris Loew-Blosser, '14, of University of Minnesota. The second qualifier was decided by a head-to-head tie-break between Loew-Blosser and Eric Sauter, '13, of University of Iowa.
