Saturday morning there was a dying Northerly that completely shut off just as the boats were leaving the basin for race one. The fleets were sent back in for what turned out to be an early lunch break. The breeze filled back in from the NW, which was very unstable. The first race got off at 12:30 where five A Division races were sailed and four B-Division races. The breeze was anywhere from N/NW/WNW with constant velocity changes. The breeze once again died completely.
After waiting for about 50 minutes a new course was set in a promising SSW ranging from 5-12knots. Two more A-Division and three B-Division races were competed to end the day.
A-Division sailed FJ's and B Division sailed 420's. The Divisions will switch fleets tomorrow morning. All courses were W-4 with the finishing pin to starboard of the race committee boat.
A special thanks to LT Jon Duffett who served as PRO, Cadet Brad Brown on leading the race committee boat and the the team of cadets who helped on and off the water.
Also, thanks to John Mooney and Tripp Alyn for judging on the water all day. Two protests were filed resulting in DSQ's for Harvard and MIT in race 6A.
Sunday morning began with what looked like a promising SW breeze. Race 8A was started and midway up the second beat the wind went hard right and the race was abandoned at the second windward mark.
After re-grouping, the RC sailed 3 races in each division in a very challenging WNW that did not want to settle in at all. After a short lunch break, the fleet went back out to a fairly "solid" Northwesterly with velocity ranging from 5-18. Four more races were sailed in each division. Courses were all W-4’s and one W-5.
There was one request for redress which was denied. Thanks to John Mooney for being here all weekend on the water.
A special thank you to LT Jon Duffett who served as PRO, Cadet Brad Brown on leading the race committee boat and the team of cadets who helped on and off the water. They all worked extremely hard all weekend in less than ideal conditions to say the least.
Congratulations to the Yale Bulldogs for winning the 2013 Emily Wick Trophy convincingly!

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.
