A cold and foggy day resulted in no sailing for the first day of the College Sailing Laser Performance Women's Singlehanded National Championships. The fleet hit the water once in the afternoon, but fog rolled back in to prevent racing.
After no racing Saturday and a strong morning forecast, the race committee moved report time and first start up one hour. Racing started promptly at 9:30 by PRO Ben Glass. Wind started at 12-15 with gusts to 20 from the south and large waves 3-5 feet. Inner and Outer trapezoid courses were sailed all day. Wind and waves eased off and shifted west. Wind speed was around 6-8 and waves around 1-2 feet for races 3-4. Around 2pm the wind fell below 3knts and racing was called for the weekend with 6 races completed.
Thanks to PRO Ben Glass, Chief Judge Bryan McDonald, the Bellingham Yacht Club, Western Washington University, and Whatcom Sailing for running a great event.
Thanks to our sponsors LaserPerformance, Marlow Ropes for providing great lasers and mainsheets.
