Day one of the Eckerd Intersectional started with a cold front rolling through. We had just a few minutes of rain and cloudy conditions. The morning was slow with a late start, a R/C mistake, and a wind shifting greatly as the front cleared out. Just four races were sailed before lunch in 8-12 knots. After lunch the sun came out and the breeze settled into a NW direction. 8 races were sailed in 12-15 knots with some gusts over 20.
The wind started off well right of and much lower than forecasted. The first race was started just before 10 in 6-8 knots out of the NE. Shifty conditions from this direction made racing and running races challenging. A couple races had to be called back to adjust the course. After the last abandoned race the forecasted breeze filled in for the last two races that were sailed in 8-10 from the NNW.
Congratulations to the Charleston Cougars for winning the 2013 Eckerd Intersectional.
