Fog arrived just as the last wisps of breeze disappeared at 9:30 this morning. Foliage was stunning for photographers juxtaposed with the foggy lake. As the morning waned on with no breeze the fog began to disparate slowly bringing the sunshine. We sat until after lunch with beautiful blue skies, a warm day crystal clear water and no breeze. Finally a trickle appeared and at times teams saw puffs to 8 or 9. Three races were completed in each division with no protests. Several spins and 1 capsize punctuated the day on a shifty course. Courses were a modification of a Harry A, allowing teams to have occasional fun on the reach to the middle.
Thanks to team members Lizzie Resnick and Meg O'Donnell who assisted with score keeping in the RC boat, and to Whit Durant and Andrew Angione who scored on Tech Score on their off set and waited for AAA to arrive to assist a visiting team.. Special thanks to Emmet Todd from M.S.S.T for helping on shore, and a special thanks to two former MSST sailors who now sail for Tufts who also helped out on shore knowing exactly what I would have wanted to have done.
Word of reminder to teams. Do not leave you doors open all day as it will kill the battery.
Congratulations to the Big D for winning the Fall Foliage Invitational.

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.
