We had some great conditions today for the first day of Northwestern's spring regatta. While the fleet headed out a little late the chilly temps, (40's) with a nice breeze of about 10 knots. The wind died towards noon, to about 5-6 knots, but then picked back up to about 13 knots by the end of the day. While waves made the beach launch tricky we got off six A races and four B races. The course also had to be adjusted a few times due to very shifty wind. Pro Cindy Kraus did a great job managing races and adjusting the course, and Geoff Pedrick only have two redresses to address throughout the day.
Sailors arrived to the boat house at 9:30 am and we started our first race at 10:05. Thankfully, today was warmer at a brisk mid 40's. We started with a westerly wind that gradually shifted south. While initially 7.5 knots, we closed out sailing at 15 knots. Cindy Kraus again did a great job running regattas, thankfully there were less wind shifts so she had to do much less maneuvering of the course. Geoff Pedrick had a few more protests and redresses today so quite a bit busier. We ended the day day with a re-sail of the first races of the regatta. With all races scored accounted for Minnesota women won the regatta followed by Minnesota 2 and then Notre Dame 1. A big thanks to all the sailors who came, the sailors who helped, PRO Cindy Kraus, Cheif Judge Geoff Pedrick, and his Judge panel.
