UVA hosted the 1st Annual Jefferson Cup, formally known as the Virginia Open. A total of 8 teams competed on Lake Anna in what turned out to be a very breezy weekend, with white caps materializing on both Saturday and Sunday. A and B fleets sailed individually in FJs. On Saturday, 9.5 sets were completed. The puffs made for an interesting day, and every team except for Salisbury experienced either a capsize or man overboard. Due to the windy conditions, there were several mechanical break downs but the patrol boats were able to respond quickly and get everyone back on the water.
On Sunday, the teams arrived expecting 5-10 knots but were greeted by more white caps and gusts in the high teens. There were gusts up to 27 knots, but eventually the wind settled to about 12 knots and 2.5 sets were completed, making for a total of 12 sets in the regatta. NC State took home the Jefferson Cup, which was presented by UVA Dean of Students, Allen Groves. Afterwards, the teams were welcomed back to the home of Arthur McKenny for a cookout on the lake. Thank you to PRO Erick Chiroles, Regatta Chairman Casey Firth, faculty advisor JT Lendon, and all of the UVA volunteers for putting on a successful event.
