A big thank you for those who travelled down to Portland for an awesome weekend! Especially our coaches, Eric Knopf, Oscar Barney, and Steve Williams for running a fun and successful clinic / regatta.
Saturday we had cloudy skies and started out in about 10-12 knots of breeze. It was a little overwhelming at first to some of our new skippers but everyone did a great job and those who capsized did so with gusto! After lunch and a chalk talk we headed back out to a nicer day with mellower winds around 6-8 knots. This made for a bit more of a relaxing afternoon in which we did, tacking, gybing, wing on wing, mark roundings, starts, and even a few races.
because of the helpful nature of our clinic on saturday, Sunday was able to go smoothly as a JV regatta. There were some excellent races where competitors were working their hardest in order to win. After 5 races the wind shut off, we waited until 3 to try and get a full 6 races but it never happened so the regatta remains uneven.
Congratulations to Portland State for being the first JV champs of the season!
