Hey there you college sailing fan you. We had a little bit of a wacky day in Annapolis for day one of the Navy Spring Women's regatta. The day started with a one hour postponement ashore while we waited for the breeze to materialize. Both fleets were sent out at approximately 1030 and racing began on Annapolis Harbor just off Triton Point at 1100. One race was sailed in each division in a Westerly breeze at around 4 knots. After race 2B, the breeze tried to fill from every possible direction but eventually faded and the fleet was sent in for a short lunch break. Racing resumed in the Severn River in front of the Robert Crown Center at 1300. Five additional A division and 4 more B division races were completed in a Northwesterly breeze ranging from 4 to 12 knots before the breeze eventually died for the day at around 1530. All races were W4s with offsets, gates, and a finish line to the opposite side of the start line.
A big thank you to our PRO, Professor Kyle Assad, as well as our volunteer squad of John Wright, Jim Wojick, Ian McGinness, Dave Clinnin, and Alana O'Reilly for filling in for our normal team of Midshipmen as they're currently enjoying their spring break. No protests were filed on the day. Tomorrow's forecast is for a slightly stronger Northwesterly breeze.
Day 2 of Navy Spring Women's 2014 saw blustery but otherwise fairly enjoyable conditions on the Severn River. Prior to sailing, a quick scoring hearing from Saturday's racing was held resulting in Cornell receiving redress in race 1A. After which, the fleet was sent out at approximately 0945 in a 11-13 knot Northwesterly breeze. Four races were sailed in each division before breaking for lunch at 1200. After lunch, 3 additional races were sailed in each fleet, totaling 12 races for the weekend. All races were W4s with an offset, gates, and a finish line to the opposite side of the RC.
One Protest was filed resulting in a DSQ in race 8A, and one breakdown request was denied. Another big thank you to PRO Kyle Assad for running one heck of an event, and to our volunteers Dave Clinnin, Alana O'Reilly, Jim Wojick, John Wright, and Ian McGuinness.

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.
