Racing began to a moderate 10-12 kt southerly from Northwestern's Sailing Center. Breeze built throughout the morning, turning toward the west and becoming increasingly puffy and shifty. Sailors completed four races in the morning. After a lunch break, competitors returned to a lighter, shiftier wind from the same direction. Four more races were completed in the early afternoon, and two more finished out the day after a mix-up on the beach. After these races, the regatta is completed, and no racing will occur on Sunday.
Throughout the regatta, the two competitors were very close, trading off wins and never more than three points apart. By the end of ten races, the two sailors were tied, with the tie being broken by the outcome of the final race.
Big thanks go out to Olof Andersson, who kept races running smoothly through changing winds, and to Bob Roitblat, George Griswold, and Ted Jones, for conducting an extensive redress hearing with procedure followed to the letter.
No racing occurred Sunday. Good luck to Ashley Kent as she advances to the National Championship!
