Sailors were welcomed to the BU sailing pavilion by sunny skies and great breeze. Sailing got underway shortly after 11 with a combination of W4 and W3s being sailed. Breeze varied from 5-25 mph, providing sailors with plently of chutes and ladders around the race course. While the direction said WSW, we saw 180-80, making today your typical Charles River sailing.
In honor of the NHL Playoffs:
3rd star: Special thanks to the BUDS alumnus who made this event work. Alumni and PRO Kyle Assad for getting 6 races in each division. He was supported by fellow BUDS alum, Brendan Cook, who served as mark boat and recovery for the day.
2nd star: Hats off to ICSA regatta rep Brian Clancy, who was at the BU boat house for the first time since high school, for his help in supporting capsized boats.
1st star: Mike Kalin for keeping people safe, towing boats, and supporting RC. The Karin Wepsic proved able and willing all day.
2 protests lodged but not filed. 1 Breakdown lodged and filed, which will be heard tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow's forecast looks spicy, bring the tums.
Shifty and Breezy.
Today brought mid to high teens for the women warriors of the Charles. With temps in the high 70's and low 80's, sailors enjoyed 4 races in challenging conditions.
Consistent high teens and low twenties saw the last two B races sailed on a modified triangle and a triangle with the finish between Marsh Chapel and the Hyatt. Late Easter Sunday celebrants were treated to a rainbow of sails off the BU beach.
Puffs into the 30's blew a few battens out of the sails, but no other incidents.
Thank you again to Coaches Charles (MIT) and Legler (Tufts) who assisted with a few capsizes in the big gusts.
1 redress heard and awarded from yesterday, 1 redress heard and awarded for two races due to aforementioned battens. Thanks to judges Cook (BU) and Chafee (Brown) for their work.
Congratulations to Tufts for winning a challenging regatta!
Happy Easter and Chag Sameach for those in the last few days of Passover!
