This regatta is sailed in memory of Thomas E. Curtis Georgetown '68. He was a great friend to all who knew him and a very accomplished sailor whose life was cut short in a tragic accident while racing his yacht Obsession in the 1979 SORC race. Tom is a member of the GU athletics hall of fame. Tom's sister Liz and nephews Curtis and Pierce came out to watch the races and root for the Hoyas.
Saturday: A beautiful day on the Potomac River. The wind filled in at 11:30AM and was SE 6-8mph for the first four races. The last two races in each division were sailed in a very shifty SW wind. Temps were in the high 70's with bright blue skies. Racing among the top 3 teams was very close. Tomorrow's forecast is for shifty wnw winds. Right now American and GW are poised to qualify for the War Memorial. Hampton is only six points out.
Sunday: Another beautiful day on the Potomac River. The wind filled in around 9:30AM and the first race started at 10AM. Seven races were sailed in each division. The first four in each division were sailing in a decent NW wind of 8-12mph. The wind shifted to the WNW for the last 3 races and the beats got very shifty. American and GW used their home water advantage to qualify for the War Memorial. Many thanks to Kyle Assad and Michael Collins for hearing protests and to the Georgetown Sailors for running the regatta.
