8 teams arrived at the Michigan Sailing Club in lovely Dexter, MI to a brisk fall morning. Racing started at 10:00 with around 12 knots of breeze from the west. The westerly breeze caused the top 25% of the course to be incredibly shifty which lead to a great deal of position changes at the top mark. 8 A division races and 6 B division races were completed with Michigan leading overall and in B division, and Purdue leading A division.
Sailors again arrived at 9am to another chilly, breezy morning at Base Line Lake. While B division was firmly in Michigan's control, A division was still up for grabs and with the regatta ending at 1pm because of a Michigan Sailing Club regatta there wasn't much time for racing. After the race 9A, Purdue had a 2 point lead on Michigan. In race 10A Purdue suffered an unfortunate capsize due to a cleated jib sheet giving Michigan the lead in A division. A huge thank you to Paul Townsend and the rest of the Michigan Sailing Club members who helped out this weekend and to the U of Michigan team members who ran the event.
