After some confusion about the location of the regatta was resolved, sailors hit the water at 11:00am ready to have a great day of sailing and burgers. With a consistent west wind, we were able to get off a set in each division before moving the course to adapt the breeze as it clocked SW and picked up a bit. A division sailed a great second set enjoying the conditions, but B division was foiled in their attempts to match this as the wind picked up to 30 knots, and boat began to drop like flies on the downwind; the third B race was abandoned and racing was called off due to these conditions. Sailors left in good spirits, a little soggy but fueled by delicious food. 41 Husky burgers were served.
Thanks to all the sailors who jumped in the water to help out those in need and to Ben Hawkins and Shannon Nardi for running race committee, as well as Jon Huzil for his invaluable contribution as grillmaster.

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.
