New boats, new sails, 18 teams including the British University Sailing Association all-star team and an incredible cast of former College Sailing superstars to run the St. Mary's Fall Intersectional--everything we needed except breeze.
Ted Hale (SMC '10) served as PRO with a great supporting cast from Leah Anderson Magana (SMC '02), Raoul Magana (Georgetown '01), Maggie Lumkes (St. Mary's '08) along with some undergraduate Seahawks kept the four races square and fair in light North/Northeast breezes in a late morning session. The jury chair Keith Mayes had expert RRS 42 advice from Kyle Assad (BU '06) and Justin Law (SMC '08) who threw a few yellow flags to settle down the early season jitters for some.
The Teddy Turner Waterfront and James P. Muldoon River Center provided a nice place for everyone to hang out while we waited for the breeze that never came following a lunch break. Thanks to KC Fullmer for serving as ICSA Intersectional representative. Everyone hoping Sunday conditions are better up and down the east coast. Charleston leads after two races in each division.
Sunday Melissa Pumphrey (SMC '07) filled the mark boat duties in place of Raoul today and she brought slightly better conditions with her. The regatta management team was able to get thru 6B before the NE died and a quick lunch break was enjoyed. Race 7A was completed in an Easterly, but 7B was abandoned by the jury. After moving the race course South of Church Point, the final three races were sailed in a light southerly. Congratulations to the Connecticut College Camels for nailing the last three races in each division for a come from behind twelve point victory over the home team.

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.
