Laser South #2


Saturday, September 25:

Saturday's racing began in a 5 knot Westerly breeze. A course was set in the cove near Greenbury Point in the Severn River. The wind shifted northwest during the morning and increased slightly in strength, but the racing was very puffy and shifty. After three races, the wind died completely and the fleet headed in for lunch. After about an hour break, a Southerly filled in and the fleet headed back out for 5 more races, before the wind died again. The wind stayed light during the afternoon, although it was less shifty than the morning.

Sunday started out cloudy rainy and considerably cooler that the day before. The wind was coming from the North at 5-10 knots, and a course was set off Horn Point in the mouth of the Severn River near Bembe Beach. The north is not a good wind direction in the Severn, so the wind tended to settle in from either the Northwest or the Northeast, leading to some massive shifts and pretty skewed legs. The wind lightened through the course of the morning and the fleet finished the 12 race series by lunchtime.

Thanks to LT Ben Herring and his team of Midshipmen for running a quality event and to Herb Larrabee, Scott Kirwin, and Dave Clinnin for serving as on the water judges.

Congratulations to Gavin Rudolph ’12 from ODU, Michael Schalka ’13 from Georgetown, Collin Leon ’13 from ODU and John Wallace ’14 from St. Mary’s for qualifying to compete in the Carl Van Duyne MASIA Men’s Single-Handed Championship at Navy on October 9-10.
