83rd Boston Dinghy Challenge Cup


Saturday, March 24:

Sailors arrived by 10 (late report time due to crew races) to a solid 6-8 knot easterly. By the time we hit the water, the breeze faded a bit and shifted right. A division sailed its first 6 races in Fireflies then 4 in Harvard FJs, B was in Harvard FJs then MIT FJs, and C was in MIT FJs then Fireflies. Thanks to Mike O'Connor for running the FJ course with help from Will White, Reid Bergsund, and Mike Lucas; thanks to Fran Charles for running the Firefly races. On shore, thanks to Wally Corwin for repairs to the MIT fleet, and Caroline Lowe from Harvard with the Harvard fleets. Thanks to MIT sailors Bruno Faviero, Pri Chatterjee, and Mark Van de Loo for helping with scoring.

Judges John Pratt, Peter Johns, Jeff Dusek, and Kerry Sullivan were on the water monitoring rule 42, and heard 3 protests resulting in 2 DSQs.

Report time is 0930 on Sunday

Sunday, March 25:

Races 11-18 were run in 5-8 knots of ENE breeze. Many 42 violations were flagged on the FJ course. Sailors seemed to really enjoy the loose rig and responsiveness of the Fireflies. Congrats to the Yale Bulldogs who displayed confidence in the lightish conditions of the Rivah Chuck.

Greg Kiely replaced Kerry Sullivan on the jury pool today. No protests were heard on Sunday.
