The George Warren Smith Trophy

Summary

Saturday, October 1:

Professor George Warren Smith was a fixture for many years by assisting NEISA run college races almost continuously for 20 plus years. He was a competitive star boat sailor and was active racing out of Sandy Bay YC in Rockport into his nineties.

Wonderful NE breeze at 8-13 with continuous drizzle and rain throughout. A division sailed Fireflies and then switched to Tech Dinghies after Race 9 with B Division doing the opposite type of boat. The Jumbos from Tufts put on a clinic as the breeze was streaky and they read the ripples like a text book.

Many thanks to Tom Robinson, Hanna Vincent, Wally Corwin, Ian Campbell, and Conan Hom for their assistance with keeping everything flowing and tech score updated.

Sunday, October 2:

A lighter breeze which was feebly pulsing in and trying to get into the north from the northeast made for strategic racing conditions. Good starts and being on the first favored tack paid off again for the Tufts Jumbos whose players won both divisions with less than half the overall points of the second place Brown Bears.

Breeze evaporated as Race 15 concluded so regatta was concluded as no puffs were consistently more than 3 knots. Thanks to Hanna Vincent, Stephen Duncan, Julia Cho, and Wally Corwin.
