Professor Smith was a seasoned volunteer at MIT helping run races for some 25 years. He enjoyed sailing a star boat out of his home club of Sandy Bay in Rockport for many years and well into his nineties.
Today's sailing started in a ENE breeze and then the breeze backed left into the north and then went back more east towards the end of the afternoon. Rain, rain, and more rain fell throughout the day. Sailors raced 3 race sets and then switched boats and types of boats every 3 races. A started in Fireflies and B Division started in Tech Dinghies.
Boston College and Tufts are sailing consistently in the shifty conditions and Roger Williams led by Kristi Dolan and Peter Neal in A Division are within striking distance.
David Larson from MIT helped with finishes and scoring while Lucy Charles helped Fran out on RC today.
A light northerly lost pressure as the day heated up. Boston College clung to their lead to squeek the victory out from the hard charging Roger Williams Hawks. Tufts' Sarah Bunney and Alp Rodopman won B Division while MIT's Fiona McKellar and Stephen Duncan tooK low point in A Division.
Thanks to Thatcher Chamberlain, Isabelle Yen, and Nathan Assela for helping out with finishes and tech score updates throughout the day.

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.
