A long and challenging first day for the New England Dinghy Championship at Brown University. The race committee negotiated throughout the day with an unstable Northwesterly fighting a Southerly that couldn't quite make its way up the bay. 6 races were completed in each division in shifty 4-8 knot winds ranging from West to North. Many thanks to Charlotte Lipschitz and Fred Strammer for judging and the Brown and Providence College undergraduates who assisted with race management. No protests were filed and one breakdown was awarded.
Another tricky day with N/NW to Westerly breezes ranging from 6-16 knots. Some broad shifts made the race management and racing difficult for sailors. Nine races were sailed in each division on Sunday on Windward/Leeward courses for a total of 15 in each division. No protests were filed, one redress was given for a broken main halyard, and one redress was denied.
A huge thanks to Roger Williams for supplying their FJ sails and to Coast Guard, Connecticut College, URI, and Moses Brown for the use of their powerboats. Thanks to all the Brown and Providence College sailors for helping run a great event in two fleets of boats. Thanks as well to John Tagliamonte, Jaime Ewing, and Art Rousmaniere for judging and keeping the competitors in check. Thanks to Matt Lindblad from MIT for being the NEISA Representative.
Congrats to the host Brown Bears on winning the NEISA Dinghy Championship for the Coast Guard Alumni Bowl and to Boston College, Tufts, Roger Williams, Dartmouth, Yale, MIT, and Connecticut College on qualifying for the ICSA National Semi-finals along with Brown, April 27-28, in Hampton, VA.

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
