Wonderful sailing conditions on the Charles River were on tap for 3 divisions of competitors in a random south, southwest breeze of 8-14 knots. Yale put on a show of excellent boat handling, starting, and sniffing out the big shifts. Charleston and Tufts are next but there is a pack of schools anxious to put some single digits together tomorrow. Lots of racing with Stan Schreyer from BU and Fran Charles from MIT sharing the RC duties along with the legend Hatch Brown himself.
Volunteers from BU assisting were Zachary Vickerson and Simon Bertocci in the finish boat. Taking turns on tech score from MIT were Clementine Mirchell, Ty Ingram, Laura Dunphy, Greta Farrell. Wally Corwin assisted on dock duties and Jeff Dusek heard two breakdown requests.

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.
