The sailors were greeted to a warm morning with a forecast of light and variable for the day and a high of 87. However, after only a 10 minute on the water postponement, the flag was dropped as the breeze filled in from the southeast at 2-6 knots where remained for the first four races in each division. However, for races 5 and 6 in each division the wind velocity varied from 1 knot to 4 knots during the races which made from challenging sailing and rewards for those who observed and got to the increased velocity. Additionally, the direction was consistent from the SE with predictable oscillations which rewards sound and observant tactics. The races were often close and the challenging breeze in the last two races resulted in 2 boats in races 5A and 2 boats in 6B being scored DNF for finishing outside the allotted finishing time limit. Overall the racing was tight with several good roundings and schools being rewarded for good boat speed and light wind handling in addition to calling of the shifts. Thank you to all schools for resolving protests on the water. There was one request for breakdown/redress filled that was refused for ICSA PR 20(a) and 20(b). Thank you to Citadel and University of Tennessee for supplying extra hulls so that we could complete the regatta with no byes and to Charleston for bringing extra sails. Thank you to Greg Fisher for also serving on the Protest Committee. Thank you to Austin Nettles ('12) and alumni Hannah Collins ('11) for running our courses and to Alex Smolka ('13) for running our mark boat. In addition, thank you to our numerous other Clemson sailors for helping to manage and run our event and making it a smooth success!

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.
