Competitors were greeted with a patchy and light breeze on the Thames River. A southerly direction eventually filled in, with a strong current making the starts challenging for teams. Several general recalls in both divisions, until the fleets were able to get their timing down for the start. Two races were completed in both divisions, before the sun set behind the hill and the breeze died off again.
Yet again, teams were met with minimal breeze on the Thames. The race committee waited until the forecasted east/southeast direction filled in. Two great races were completed in each division, providing very interesting racing for the 18 teams. The breeze again became unreliable around 2:30, and racing was called for the weekend. Overall, a difficult weekend of conditions. A big thanks to the Camel sailors that helped with race committee. Congratulations to the University of Rhode Island Rams for their success on the challenging Thames River this weekend!
