Four races in each division were completed on Saturday of the 2014 Victorian Coffee Urn. Temps hovering around 40 meant cold, rainy, and breeze at 2-6 knots from a direction generally characterized as North, with plenty of East and occasional West as well. Thanks to Protest Committee Kelsey Wheeler D'14 and Bernie Roesler D'12, for hearing one protest resulting in a DSQ. Big thanks to the Dartmouth RC team for great racing in trying conditions - we are looking forward to an epic one tomorrow!
Sunday dawned big and burly at the Victorian Coffee Urn. With temps in the low to mid thirties and breeze beginning around 10-15 knots, but with plenty of meat behind some puffs into the mid twenties, 6 races were completed in each division. RC brought back the venerable Course 5 for some fun reaching, and, admittedly, less running. Thanks again for a superlative effort from the Dartmouth Race Committee team, and especially to first year heroes Duncan Williford, Erik Weis, Ned Feist, and Ollie Engelhart, who combined to rescue some 15 capsizes - imagine jumping into a lake when it is 35 degrees and blowing 25, righting a boat, and sailing it to the dock, all the time knowing you have to get right back on the coachboat and do it again. We could not have run the regatta without their effort, as well as that of our volunteers on RC and Judges Kelsey Wheeler D'14 and Bernie Roesler D'12. Thanks to Bill Healy for ICSA Rep, and congrats to those teams that qualified for the Women's Atlantic Coast Championship.

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.
