S-SW breezes at 12-20 knots with some pretty wacky auto tacks thrown in made the sailing exciting for the women. A division started in Fireflies, switched to FJs after 4 races and back to Flies for races 9 and 10. B division did the opposite. As the breeze got gusty, sailors switched to a reefed mainsail in the flies and storm jibs in the FJs.
Many thanks to Lianne Dusek and Kerry Sullivan for volunteering as judges. Special appreciation to Cali Warner, Kayla Ngan, Lisa Archibald, and Sue Charles for helping out on RC. Franny Charles ran the 10 races in both A and B Divisions as the PRO.
A light NW breeze became increasingly more unstable as the day went on. Four races were completed in 3-5 knots with the occasional westerly shifts as well as northerlies. Congrats to the Yale Bulldogs Women's Team who showed great comfort in a wide range of conditions in both types of boats.

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.
