The sailors arrived to a departing storm system with temperatures in the high 50's where they remained all day. Winds began at 5 knot W and over the course of the day dropped to 1-4 knots shifting left until the last B set when they filled in from the SSW at 4-7 knots. The conditions were light and challenging, thus rewarding skillful light air boat handling and sail trim. One protest was heard for the day. Congratulations to Charleston for their victory.
Thank you also to our Clemson volunteers who ran mark boats and on shore responsibilities. Also thank you to our Clemson Alumn Hanna Collins and Sammy Hodges for running our races. In addition, thank you to Citadel and Tennessee for bringing spare boats so that we could avoid a bye situation. Also, thank you to the coaches for hearing the protest. Finally, thank you to Western Carolina Sailing Club for hosting us so that we could run the event in better sailing conditions and a superior venue.
