Thanks to Ken Legler for allowing UNH to host the Peak Foliage at Tufts while our dam is repaired. Thanks also to Alex and his cadre of Tufts sailors who assisted in rigging and making sure things ran well. Jibs were wrapped and teams sailed under mains along - a challenge for all.
Teams that thought about the CE lifted their centreboards a bit allowing them to make their way upwind with fewer issues. Lots of stalled boats, below the line, mid-course and everywhere else. Nobody was immune. Breeze flew across the hill making for crazy shifty breeze. We saw everything from 8 to 18 with gusts in the mid and high 20's. Surfing was spectacular as were many death rolls and plain ole capsizes.
Thanks to Alex Levin for being the NEISA rep. One protest, a P/S situation which John Ingalls heard. No other protests and only 2 minor BKDs, 2 loose bolts in a rudder assembly and 1 tiller/extension exchange. Very short courses, but exciting racing.
Special thanks to River Innaconne (mark/rescue boat), Ella Cedarholm (mark/rescue boat), Savannah Passaretti (scorer) and Madison Joslin (RC boat) for all the work today.
UNE canceled early this morning. WPI and Holy Cross were no shows. Congratulations to McGill for winning the Peak Foliage Regatta.

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.
