It was a nasty day on Salt Pond. A cold northerly with steady, cold rain all morning gradually diminishing to yield some bright spots by the end of the day. After towing the fleet to the course racing was underway by 10:30 and 4 A sets and 3 B sets were completed on Course 4s. Many super close finishes. How do you score a tie?
Brown leads with Roger Williams 2nd and Eckerd 3rd. 6 teams within 16 points at the front of the fleet.
Sunday was delightful! Bright sun and seasonable temps had the off set sunbathing on Gardiner's Island. Northerlies again, but lighter after 1 fairly breezy set. Roger Williams was best today and secured the win in the rapidly dying breeze. After a slow start on Saturday, Dartmouth was hot in B and moved to 2nd. Yale and BC were solid throughout and ended tied with Yale winning the breaker. Racing was super close throughout the event.
The breeze rapidly shut off during the 11-12 A set. 11A was completed but 12A was abandoned as the breeze died completely. B came out with the hope of getting 11B, but the race was abandoned once, restarted, and abandoned a second time and the regatta was over.
Skip Whyte was PRO with Hannah Patry scoring. A host of Rams manned 5 Whalers to facilitate rotation on the water which added several sets to the final tally.
There were several general recalls in the first sets on Saturday, but the fleets behaved thereafter. No breakdowns, no protests, plenty of circles.
