Racing for today was stopped at 4:45 after 20 races in A division and 18 in B. Courses were modified windward/leewards with 4 races sets. Thanks to Harvard for use of their fleet. Thanks to John Tagliamonte for hearing 2 redresses. Fran Charles was the PRO with lots of help from dockmasters Wally Corwin and Patrick Joyce and the rest of the MIT dockstaff.
8 Races are left in each A division and 10 in B division to complete the double round robin.
With a 3pm last race deadline, competitors finished up with only 26 races in each division. A gorgeous thermal effect bolstered a light SE breeze and shifted the direction to the left as it strengthened through the afternoon. Windward,leeward twice around courses were sailed with throughout Sunday. Sue Epstein heard the one protest of the regatta at the end of sailing. Special thanks to MIT sailors Katii Gullick and David Rodriguez for helping out with scoring today.
