Saturday was a very nice day in Annapolis. The sky was sunny and the temperatures hovered in the 60s for most of the day. There was no wind at first and the fleet was postponed on shore until 10:30. A light SE breeze filled in at 2-5 knots and racing began in the Severn River right off the Robert Crown Center. The wind was light and puffy and there was a noticeable current all day, making for challenging racing. During Race 8B, the wind shifted to the SW and we had to move the course out off Triton Point. The fleet returned to shore just before sunset after a very long day on the water. A Division sailed FJs, B sailed Z420s, C was in Lasers and D sailed Laser Radials. All races were trapezoids. Thanks to Michael Popp for enforcing rule 42. Also, thanks to the volunteers of the Naval Academy Sailing Squadron Social Committee for putting on a terrific barbecue for all of the competitors after racing.
Sunday started out with a light Southwesterly breeze and we started racing at 10:00 off Triton Point. The wind was very shifty and spotty. The conditions were marginal at best for the first set and a half. After lunch breaks, a southerly filled in and we were able to finish sail through race 16 in each division in very nice conditions - 8-12 knots. All races were trapezoids. No protests or requests for redress were filed on shore. Congratulations to Georgetown for winning the 2016 Truxtun Umsted Regatta.
