It was a gorgeous fall weekend in Annapolis, with sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s both days. The downside of the beautiful weather was that we were left with a lack of wind both days, testing the patience and skill of both the competitors and the race committee. On Saturday morning, the wind was from the north at 3-6 knots and a course was set off Triton Point in Annapolis Harbor. Three light and shifty races were sailed per division before the wind shut off and the fleet was sent in for a lunch break. After lunch, one more race was sailed in the dying northerly before racing was called for the day.
Sunday morning began with a postponement ashore until 1100 when a light 3-5 knot southeasterly breeze filled in. the Race Committee set a course in the Severn River off the Robert Crown Center and two windward leeward races were sailed in each division before the wind lightened and everyone came in for a short lunch break. While the fleet was ashore, the course was shifted closer to the Severn River Bridge and the fleet sailed two more races before the wind shut off for good. LT Ben Herring and his team of Midshipmen did a great job getting the most out of the conditions and running fair races, while judges Herb Larrabee, Scott Kirwin and Austin Kana kept the competitors honest.
Congratulations to Georgetown for winning the 2010 Atlantic Coast Dinghy Championship!

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.
