Blue skies and breeze greeted sailors on Saturday. Sailors sailed combined divisions and made the event more challenging with 18 boats aggressively on the line. The breeze 5-8 with higher gusts was shifty, often oscillating 45 degrees keeping the mark boat busy. Several capsizes (note: wearing a drysuit partially unzipped and capsizing leads to it filling up with water; not safe), a sailor falling out of his boat (note: check all knots especially the hiking strap), made for entertaining viewing and coaching. Nine races were sailed completing the regatta.
Many thanks to the coaches who were on the water and were able to assist with marks and sailors as necessary. Thanks especially to the Wildcat support team for moving marks and shore support. Coaches, several teams still have not filled out RP forms.
Congratulations to the UNH Wildcats for winning the Fall Foliage.

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.
