Gnarly NNE breeze at 20-30 knots with rain and heavily overcast skies made for a perfect late October setting. BU Sailors Joe Benoit and Nicole Lukas won the tie breaker after four races with Fireflies in the waning evening light. Lots of swimming was on tap for those who did not get their weight aft far enough before the whammies hit them. Water temps are still in the mid 50s but dropping precipitously as the sun only reflects from the surface now.
Lots of fun and special thanks to Patrick Barrigan and David Alfonso from MIT who assisted as safety boat.

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
