While the north battles piling snow and killer ski conditions, the south continues to host beautiful warm regattas. The SAISA open had 20 teams show up to race on lower Boca Ciega Bay. The breeze was somewhere around 12 knots out of the north northeast. This made for some puffy and shifty breeze in the flat water. W4s and W3s were sailed, with one W5 at the start of the day. The breeze slowly started to lighten up but remanded raceable for the entire day. The Cougars jumped out to an early lead but the Gators snatched it right at the end of the day.
The second day conditions were very similar. The passing cold front had moved the breeze more east but at about the same strength. The breeze was slightly steadier in direction although still puffy. Just like the day before there were plenty of general recalls as the fleet continued to push the line. 12 A and B races were completed for the weekend. Congratulations to the Gators for winning a very close event. Thanks to all the Tritons for helping out for the weekend.

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.
