A day for the windy crews at the KPDO! We started the day with a medium south westerly. At around 11:30 the forecast proved to be correct with the breeze ramping up into the 20s. During race 5 racing turned into survival mode with gusts over 25knots. We had an extended lunch break waiting for the wind to die a bit. Around 2:15 we went back out but only used 1 fleet of boats to make things more manageable. Great heavy air racing took place and sailors seemed to enjoy it!
3 protests were heard resulting in two DSQ's. Only 1 breakdown was granted.
Thank you to Michael Callahan and Charles Higgins for hearing the protests, Morgan Wilson for helping with RC work, and UB for helping sort out the scrambled sail bags after all teams had left for the day. As always, thanks to the KP Mids for running a great day of sailing.
Day two at the KPDO had a very shifty and puffy West North Westerly breeze direction. The pressure ranged from 6-17 knots. We started race 9A before 9:50 and finished with 16 races in each division around 2:15. We had an extended morning with no lunch break and finished the event earlier allowing teams plenty of time to drive home. Courses were W-4's with offset and gate all weekend.
1 protest was hear resulting in a DSQ. Army was a no-show. Thanks to Russ O'Reilly for hearing the protest and to the KP Midshipmen for setting marks.

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
