Mt. Hope Bay/Southern 1

Summary

Saturday, September 12:

While the temperature was great and the skies mostly sunny, the wind forecast wasn't promising with a light northerly going left all day. By the time racing started around 10:20, the breeze had lightly filled from the south. The ebbing current had a big impact on the racing. The race committee didn't do a great job of managing the course length with the breeze and current; some races were 15 minutes, with one lasting more than 40 minutes. By 2pm a 8-10knot sea breeze filled to close out the day.

All courses were windward leewards twice around. 6 A and B races were sailed. One protest was heard resulting in a DSQ.

Many thanks to Hawks undergrads Ed Lebens, Enzo DiGioia, Sam Dorothy, and Nicole Gambacorta for helping to run the races.

Sunday, September 13:

A light and shifty N, occasionally E breeze prevailed. The ebbing current remained a challenge for some teams. It was mostly overcast until the last B set when downpours drenched everyone. I think the spectators were happy to retreat into the Richard L. Bready Mt. Hope Bay Sailing and Education Center when the rain started.

4 more races were sailed in A and B division.

Many thanks to Hawks undergrads Ed Lebens, Peter Forsberg, Haley Clancy, and Jennifer Agell for helping with race committee duties.
