Competitors at the Womenâ€™s ACCs had beautiful conditions on the East River today, with a south breeze from 10-20 knots all day and tons of sunshine, albeit with chilly temperatures. Racing began promptly at 10:00 AM and eight races were completed in each division. At the end of the day the B division boats hit the dock a few minutes after sunset. A big thanks goes out to the Maritime sailors for their hard work keeping the racing fair and efficient all day. Seven protests were filed resulting in four DSQs. Thanks to Jesse Combs, John Stock III, Ian Burman, Nick Ewenson, Brian Clancy, Dan Thompson and Mike Callahan for hearing the protests after a long day of racing. After day 1, Brown leads in a close battle with Yale, Charleston, and Georgetown right on their heels. Full scores can be found at: http://scores.collegesailing.info/f11/women-atlantic-coast/
Sunday brought similar conditions for the Womenâ€™s ACC competitors but with a bit lighter breeze. 6 races were completed in each division to bring the total to 14 races each. Most of the races over the weekend were W6â€™s due to our proximity to the very active East river shipping channel with a few W4â€™s peppered in when the breeze got light. Another great day of racing and again my thanks go out to the Maritime sailors for running a great event. Thanks also to Nick Ewenson for hearing a breakdown request, resulting in average points awarded to Georgetown in race 12A.
Congratulations to Yale for winning this yearâ€™s Womenâ€™s Atlantic Coast Championship in a tie-breaker over the University of Rhode Island and one point clear of Dartmouth.
