The William and Mary 2017 Spring open began with temperatures in the upper fifties and low sixties, and light wind (2-4 knots) out of the south west, which declined throughout the day. Division A's first race began around 10:00 am, and we were only able to get through B Division's first race before a break was called at noon to wait for wind. After thirty minutes there was a light breeze, and we decided to send the boats out to try to finish B Division's rotation. The wind died again as soon as the boats left the dock, so we recalled them and wrapped up the day by 2:00 pm.
The day began with low temperatures in the upper thirties accompanied by some snow and rain for an hour or so. The wind was 10-15 knots gusting 20 knots throughout the day. The University of Virginia did not arrive. We began with Division B's second race around 10:00 am, and managed to run quite a few races. We ended relatively early due to the cold around 2:00 pm with Division B's sixth race.
