Saturday morning teams arrived to glassy conditions on the East River. Breeze quickly filled from the south west and very patchy but enough to try to start racing on time.
The first A division set took almost 2 hours to get off with lots of abandoned starts and a few recalls. After the slow start the breeze settled in and the racing was smooth the entire rest of the day.
Even with a short course to keep the racing area out of the channel we still had to abandon one race due to a barge cutting through the course.
After 8 races in each division there was 1 breakdown and 1 protest that will both be heard tomorrow morning.
Thank you to the whole team of SUNY Maritime undergrads who conquered the very difficult task of East River mark set in shifty currenty conditions!
Sunday at the NYM Fall Open started with a light 5-10 knot westerly which increased to 9-15 knots out of the southwest. We finished the day with race 13B around 2:45. There were 2 requests for a breakdown due to a main halyard shiv missing, resulting in broken main halyards and two protests were filed resulting in DSQ's to Syracuse and Navy. Thank you to Michael Callahan and Tierney Driscoll for hearing protests and redress requests. Thank you to the NY Maritime cadets for assisting with the event.
