Saturday, April 7:

Sailors were greeted to a nice sunny morning with temperatures in the low 60's all day. We raced on a modified windward-leeward, twice around. 8 races per division were finished before 430pm, when the wind shifted 90 degrees and died. No protests were filed. Northwestern sits in first at the end of day 1, with Michigan in second and UW-Milwaukee in third.

Sunday, April 8:

Sailors arrived to another nice morning with wind around 8 knots. Race 8B was sailed and then we resumed our normal 2-race rotation with the goal of finishing the remaining 5 races per division. Halfway through the morning, wind built to 15kt with gusts and continued increasing to 20+ by the last B set. 12 races per division were completed by the end of the day. Illinois did not show for Sunday Many thanks to our race committee John Hill (PRO-Sat), Lisa Gable (PRO-Sun), and Rick Lillie for getting all our races off, and to Betsy Altman with her team of judges for standing by all weekend and holding one breakdown hearing. Northwestern was awarded average points for the front of the hiking straps coming out of the pressure plate. Congratulations to our podium of Northwestern, Michigan Wolverines, and Michigan Maize and thank you to all sailors for coming to 2012 WYW!

Many teams did not fill out regatta evaluation forms and were given RP penalties per MCSA policy.
