Only two A-division races were sailed on day one of the Sherman Hoyt Trophy hosted by Brown University at the Edgewood Yacht Club. With overcast skies, cool temps, and a dying breeze, one set was completed in north/northeast winds of 4-6 knots on W4 courses. Two attempts were made to get in a race for B-division with both races abandoned as winds dropped to nothing at times and the tack and/or gybe fest came into play. Thanks to our judges Peter Bailey (Brown '15), Johanna Kincaid (Brown '15), and Kelly McGlynn (Brown '15), and to all of the Brown sailors for helping out. Thanks as well to ICSA Representative Justin Assad from Dartmouth. Tomorrow's forecast looks much better with race 1B warning scheduled for 10am. Photographer Rob Migliaccio will be on hand to take some great shots of everyone.
Race 1B got underway shortly after 10am in a south/southwest breeze of 6-10 knots. Much of the racing continued in similar conditions with a little drizzle at times and the breeze slowly shifting to the west. As the wind went west, there were teaser puffs of nearly 15 knots that only lasted for a few minutes. By 1pm the breeze fully went west and began to die, making the last few races slow paced and in wind ranges of 3-6 knots. All courses were W3 and W4's, one protest was filed and was disallowed. Thanks to our judges Peter Bailey (Brown '15), Johanna Kincaid (Brown '15), and Kelly McGlynn (Brown '15), and to all of the Brown sailors for helping out. Thanks as well to ICSA Representative Justin Assad from Dartmouth. Photographer Rob Migliaccio was on hand to take some great shots of everyone and his photos will be posted on the NEISA Facebook shortly.
With only 10 total races, the regatta came down to the last race for the top 4 teams. A huge congrats to M.I.T. for sailing a great event and winning the 2015 Sherman Hoyt Trophy by one point over Yale.
