After waiting out the glassy river conditions, racing started at ~1115AM in a shifty westerly breeze. 2A and 2B races were completed in each division on course 3s and 4s until the breeze died again. After a second wind delay and some drifting around, two more A and B races were completed in a new south-southeasterly breeze that brought big shifts in to shuffle the fleet.
After day 1 the Lady Jumbos are sitting comfortably in the top spot.
A beautiful day of sailing on the River Charles. The fleet hit the water around 1015 after a short delay to wait for teams caught a the traffic jam from Storrow Drive being shut down. From start to finish the westerly breeze kept the fleet on its toes with winds ranging from 5kts-12kts each coming with their share of drastic left and right hand shifts. 8 races were completed in each division on course 4s and 5s with one 3 to complete the day. The RWU Hawks charge out of the gate strong showing great consistency in the tricky conditions. With a string of firsts throughout their scorelines, the Hawks proved the adage of Terrier-alum Billy Uniack correct showing that "bullets fix everything." The day brought a handful of capsizes and one protest resulting in a DSQ.
