Sailors arrived at 9:00AM to chilly temperatures and a light drizzle, but decent wind of about 8 mph out of the north. The first race was off by 10:15AM and we managed to complete five full rotations in anticipation of light winds on Sunday. Twice around windward-leeward courses were sailed all day with the exception of the last rotation where once around windward-leeward courses were sailed. Wind held steady all day at anywhere from 8-10 mph with gusts up to 16 mph at some points during the day. All races went off quite smoothly with minimal delays to adjust the course and one general recall in race 9B. There were no capsizes or protests filed. Our last race finished around 4:30PM.
Sailors arrived at 10AM to a sunny day, but the anticipated very light wind. A Fleet went out by 11:00AM and managed to get one race off quickly, but during the second race we experienced a radical wind shift from the Northeast to to the Southwest and the subsequent ceasing of a breeze altogether. The race was called and we waited for the breeze to pick up again in order to adjust the course and get the second race off. B Fleet experienced similar difficulties with shifting and dying winds. Wind finally filled in to about 6mph out of the west around 1:55PM and the sixth rotation was completed by 2:15. Unfortunately there was not enough time to complete the desired 7th rotation by the 3:00PM stopping time. Many teams were neck and neck throughout the competition, but at the end of 6 rotations University of Delaware was in first place by one point, followed by Ocean County College. Thank you to all of the attending teams, North East Yacht Club, and the University of Delaware Sailing Team for helping us put on a great event!
