Racing was delayed until about noon when the maritime layer burned off and the seabreeze filled in. We towed most out to the racecourse in the â€œlower pondâ€� as the breeze built to about 5 knots. We ran 10 W4s (with offsets and separate gates) from about noon until just after 4pm. By the end the southerly breeze was up to about 9knots. One protest was filed at the end of the day and it was disallowed.
The dayâ€™s racing was very different from the day before, with major differences in wind velocity and direction, with a North Westerly median heading. Breeze was 5-12 knots. We ran 6 more races using the same course, but the breeze direction and proximity to the channel as a result, along with much more powerboat traffic on Sunday made for some substantial obstructions and sea state variation on the racecourse. There were no breakdowns, injuries, or major incidents to report. No protests were followed through with. All in all 16 races using a combined fleet format made for good fun and competition for all.
