Chamber of Commerce conditions prevailed on the second day of the Smith Trophy. The Boston College Eagles rallied to overtake the MIT Engineers for the overall trophy. The Tufts Jumbos also clawed to within a point of the home team under a west wind at 12-15 knots with 100% sunshine. The trophy honors a distinguished Professor Emeritus of MIT who dedicated many weekends serving as RC at home events. Professor George Warren Smith also raced his star boat out of Sandy Bay YC into his nineties.

Many thanks to Greta Farrell, Clemmie Mitchell and Tucker Charles who assisted with RC duty today.
