A long, cold tricky day on the St. Mary's River. The RC was very patient in the morning with light NE and East winds that went flat after two good races. After an extra-long lunch break racing got going in what started out as a nice southerly; but went to the west and when the rain came in at the end of the day the breeze faded. The final leg of race 7B wasn't so pretty with Georgetown and a handful of others across the finish line while part of the fleet was nearly becalmed at the weather mark. Mercifully, the breeze re-filled and the boats reached across the line. Big thanks to Chief Judge Charlie Arms and Fletcher Sims for keeping watch over the fleet on rule 42. Navy leads by 7 with a dominating performance in A.
Sunday was sunny and delightful, but very trying on the patience of sailors. A really tough day to set courses and make fair racing. Many starts were abandoned and some races too. Breeze went round the dial and back again. The RC made a valiant attempt to start the final race 13b in a new NW direction and came within a minute of doing so; but time ran out. Racing for the final spots at the Sperry/ ICSA Women's National Semi-Finals was very closely contested. Best of luck to Georgetown, Navy, St. Mary's, ODU, Hobart and Cornell in Newport, RI.
One request for redress was heard and denied. Thanks to jury members Charlie Arms, Fletcher Sims and Guy Barbato along with PRO Joshua Greenslade and the Seahawks for running the championships.
