The regatta hit the ground running, with the wind blowing in the low to mid teens. The wind was a little shifty as it came over the lake, but all of the teams were able to stick through it, and sail very competitively. Along with the shifty wind, the cold temperatures posed another challenge, but thanks to the Commodore Decatur Yacht Club, we kept fires going, and we were able to keep all of the sailors warm.
The conditions on Sunday were very similar to those of Saturday, and competitors faced the same challenges. Due to the wind shifts, there were longer breaks between rotations, but the yacht club kept all of the competitors busy, and warm. Since most of the rotations were completed on Saturday, Sunday was a little more relaxed. Despite the difficult conditions, Northwestern was able to hold on to their lead from day 1, and clinched first place in all divisions. Congratulations to Northwestern, and we hope to see everyone out again next year.
