Fifteen schools and 28 teams made the trek to the US Sailing Center this weekend for the last fleet race before Healy trophy. Battling Long Beach Grand Prix traffic on the road and Congressional Cup traffic on the water. The fleet had to sail a little further east than normal today to stay clear of the 50th Congressional Cup racers and spectators operating off the Belmont Veterans Memorial Pier with the teams. It made for lots of excitement on the pier and plenty of food options for the sailors in the off rotation.
Breeze was 7 to 20 kts all day and perfect sunny Southern California conditions. The race committee ran a variety of windward/leewards, triangles and modified olympic courses during the day. Two teams retired early, several learned the hard way where the line was and earned OCS penalties. Racing ran late today with the hope of an earlier cutoff on Sunday to get our teams on the road before the Grand Prix wraps up.
The marine layer was just starting to burn off at the sailors arrived at the US Sailing Center Long Beach this morning for day 2 of the South Designate. After a few formalities on shore the fleet departed to try and beat the Congressional Cup spectators to the course area. Breezes were lighter and the RC saw more shifts today.
The sun appeared and the fleet manged 4 more races in each division before calling it quits. They needed to reach the harbor mouth before the Congressional Cup parade or risk being rained on by the fire boats for the whole sail in.
Congratulations to Stanford's Scott Buckstaff, Katie Walker, Holly Tullo and Noelle Herring on sailing a great regatta. Thank you to the US Sailing Center for hosting us, the USC Sailing Team coaches, sailors and supporters for assisting with race committee and the Congressional Cup organizing committee for letting us share the pier all weekend.
Congratulations to the teams that qualified for the Healy Trophy Coed Championship in Hawaii later this month!
