Saturday was a beautiful day for sailing in Annapolis, with sunny skies and temperatures near 80. The wind was light, 3-10 knots from the WNW and a trapezoid course was sailed in the Severn River right off the Robert Crown Center. To keep things moving with an odd number of teams, we set up the rotation to rotate after 5 races per division, so after 5 races in the morning, the fleet came in for lunch. Five more races were completed in A division while four more were sailed in B and C before the wind shut off and the fleet was sent in for the day. With the sailboat show in town on a gorgeous weekend, the boat traffic was significant and the chop, combined with the puffy, shifty winds, made for some seriously challenging racing.
Sunday was another beautiful day, but the wind was not cooperating early on. The fleet headed out in the morning, only to see the wind totally die before everyone headed back to shore for an early lunch break. At around 1200, the wind filled in from the southeast and another trapezoid course was set right off the Crown Center. The wind stayed light, but was less shifty than the day before. The boat traffic was still significant and there was a fair amount of current running counter to the wind early on. 16 total races were completed per division
The Race Committee, comprised of Dina Kowalyshyn, CAPT Richard Morin (Ret.), Rod Mincher, LT Ben Herring, Maureen Mills and a team of Midshipmen ran some great races and Judges Herb Larrabee and Scott Kirwin heard one protest, resulting in Brown receiving a DSQ in race 7A.
Congratulations to the Brown University Bears for winning the 2010 Navy Fall Women’s Intersectional.

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.
