Teams arrived to sunny skies and warm temperatures around 80 degrees this morning at Magnuson Hotel Marina Cove - where the competitors are sailing. Winds were from the east, a rare direction for the venue, at about five knots. As the day progressed the temperatures rose to the mid-80s and the winds became inconsistent.
The wind died and began to shift around in the middle of the day when the race committee called for lunch on shore and a break while they waited for the sea breeze to fill in. The winds came in from the south and filled to about 10 knots out of the southwest. The conditions held for a while until afternoon/evening thunderstorms came in and caused another delay in racing. The competitors were able to get a little more sailing in after the storms, but the race committee called it a day around 7:30 p.m. eastern time.
Teams are sailing in Club FJ’s on trapezoid courses. Both A-division and B-division completed eight races today.
The sailors arrived to temperatures in the 80s, partly cloudy skies and a light 5-knot breeze from an easterly direction. The first race of the day was scheduled to start around 9 a.m., however the easterly breeze died and the race committee went into a postponement.
Unfortunately the wind did not fill in time for the Semi-Finals time limit and no races were sailed this morning. The results for the eight races sailed in each division of Semi-Finals yesterday stand.
The nine teams that qualified from the Semi-Finals series, listed in order, are: Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Eckerd College, Brown University, Georgetown University, University of South Florida, Connecticut College, Roger Williams University and William Smith College.
Thank you to our judge team of Tom Rinda-Chief Judge, Carrie Greene, Susan Wallace, Rob Overton and Jared Hickman. The USF and Eckerd Sailing teams for shore and on-ther water support and management and the Magnuson Hotel for the great venue!
