The forecast for the 2010 Navy Spring Women's Intersectional called for heavy rain and wind throughout the day on Saturday, and while we certainly saw our share of rain, the wind didn't happen quite as predicted. We started out with a shifty northwesterly that began at around 15 knots and dropped below 5 by noon. Four races were completed per division on windward / leeward courses before an hour long lunch break. After lunch, the fleet headed back out for more light and shifty racing, with at least two races being called off during the afternoon after massive shifts made the course extremely uneven. After four more races per division, the fleet went back in and was treated to great cookout compliments of the Naval Academy Sailing Squadron.

The day began on Sunday with a light Northerly and the fleet left the dock at 0930. After a short delay, the wind increased to around 5 knots and the ninth races were started in each division. The Northerly increased throughout the morning to around 10 knots and we finished two sets before the fleet headed in for lunch. After lunch, the spot we had been occupying all weekend off Triton point was filled with two local frostbiting fleets and we set up in the Severn River to finish the regatta. While it was certainly shifty, the northerly provided some good racing and all 17 races per division were complete by 1530. Fortunately, the rain held off and the competitors stayed considerably drier on Sunday. Congratulations to the Charleston Cougars for winning the 2010 Navy Spring Women's Intersectional.

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.
