George Morris Trophy

Summary

Sponsored by Beneteau

Saturday, April 25:

Racing began just after 11 after a delayed report time due to crew races. The breeze started from the west at 6-10 knots and clocked to the north and faded over the course of the day. Strong directional oscillations was the theme for the day. Courses were W4s and W5s. A division sailed 8 races, B division sailed 6.

Two protests were filed and will be heard Sunday morning.

Thanks to BU freshmen Reed, Andrew, and Sam for helping the race committee, Ben Greenfield BU'11 and Cam Fraser BU'14 .

Sunday, April 26:

Saturday's protests were heard in the morning, resulting in 1 DSQ.

Overall it was a slow day on the Charles. There was lots of waiting in the morning, but were finally able to get going at 12:30 when the breeze settled in from the east-southeast at 3-5 kts. B division started the day, sailing a set of W4s. A division then sailed a set, but in the end the wind didn't cooperate. We were unable to finish the last B set when the easterly faded, nullifying the 2 races sailed by A division.

Congratulations to the Vermont Catamounts for winning the 2015 George E. Morris Trophy!
