Racing got underway shortly after 1030 in a building west wind. Cool temps and frequent rain showers made their way across the race course all day. Shifty winds from 8-16knts kept sailors on their toes and a strong current meant many OCS's hailed at the start line. Thanks to technical support from Greg Wilkinson and Dayan Paez, race committee was able to score races live on the water using only a smart phone. 6A and 6B races were sailed before racing was called for the day. One protest was filed resulting in a DSQ.
Sailors arrived to brisk temps, clear skies and a fresh breeze. Winds quickly built to 12-14knts with afternoon puffs in the high teens/low twenties. Sunday's breeze brought 30 degree oscillations and steep chop. 4A and 4B races were sailed before the 3pm cut-off time. Courses were modified windward-leewards.
A special thanks to all the volunteers that helped with race committee this weekend; Dave Patterson, Andrew Nelson, Chris Brown, Jess Frazier, Jay McRostie and Jack Thomas. Thanks to Steve Williams, Andrew Nelson and Chris Brown for hearing protests and to Zip 2 Water for the clean, filtered drinking water.
Congrats to the University of Washington, this year's Rainier Cup winner!

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.
