Amazing conditions for sailing on the Charles River with a 12-22 knot west, northwest breeze kicking up. A Division started in Fireflies and switched to FJs after Race 6. B Division did the opposite. Abundant swimming with the trapezoid courses forced the RC to change courses to double triangles and avoid running dead downwind in the breeze. Lots of fun rides with a gybe mark out in the windiest part of the River.
Coach Mike Kalin assisted on RC with mark tweaking, finishes and assistance on capsize recovery. One protest was heard resulting in a DSQ and an award of redress.
Congrats to the Wrathful Beavers of MIT who won both Divisions and had less than half the points of the second place Rhody Rams.

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.
