Saturday: Sailors were greeted Saturday with a gnarly Lake Champlain. Coaches decided to give it a good old college try, but with 1 in 4 boats over at any given time before racing started, the fleet was sent in. At 12:30, it was still nuclear (puffs recorded at 39 kts!) and racing was called off for the day with a 9am start scheduled for Sunday.
Sunday: The wind had moderated significantly by Sunday with steady 15 to 20 kt winds and puffs to 25. Races finally commenced with short modified triangles. Everything went as planned until the start of race 4A. Shortly after the start, the breeze picked up to about 25 and sailors roared downwind. Were talking 2011 NE's at the Rog conditions! Sailors were sent in for an hour and a half wind hold. Fortunately, we were able to get three more races in by 3pm. Thanks to the 15 teams who made the trek up to Vermont!
