Admiral Moore Team Race

Summary

Saturday, March 23:

The East River was angry today. Very cold and windy conditions were in store for the ten teams at the Admiral Moore Team Race. Racing began at 10AM with a good number of morning capsizes, but a round robin of 45 races was able to be completed by 2:30. Competitors were graciously given a short break on shore to thaw out and eat a late lunch, after which we started progress on Round Robin 2. The infamous SUNY Maritime current showed up in full force in the afternoon, making for interesting racing and giving the race committee fits with lots of dragging anchors. In all, 65 races were completed with the last boats in the fleet hitting the dock just after 5PM. Three protests were filed, resulting in two DSQs. Thanks to Scott Ikle for helping hear the protests.

A big thanks goes to the Maritime sailors for toughing out the nasty conditions and cranking out a lot of quality races. The goal for tomorrow is to complete the second round robin and a final four and the forecast is promising for that.

After day one Hobart/William Smith leads with a record of 11-2.

Sunday, March 24:

Lighter winds were on the docket for competitors at the Admiral Moore TR on Sunday, with a shifty and puffy NW breeze between 3-7 knots allowing only for the completion of the second round robin by 1:30. It was determined that there would be no final four attempted due to marginal sailing conditions on the river. Four protests were heard resulting in two DSQs in race 88, thanks again to Scott Ikle for his help dispensing justice.

Congrats to the Hobart/William Smith Statesmen and Herons for their win over the weekend! Full scores can be seen at http://scores.collegesailing.org/s13/admiral-moore-team-race/.
