Day one of Navy Fall began with on a beautiful Fall morning in Annapolis. Sunny skies, fair temperatures, and a light Northwesterly breeze welcomed the competitors to the Robert Crown Center. After a brief competitors meeting, the four fleets headed out onto the Severn River at around 1015. A trapezoid course was set up just outside of Santee Basin and racing got underway at around 1030. After three races were completed, the breeze began to build and the fleets were sent in for an extended lunch break. After lunch, at approximately 1245, racing continued in a much stronger but puffy West/Nortwesterly breeze, again just off of the RCC. Six additional races were completed after lunch to bring the total to 9 on the day for all divisions. All races were trapezoids in the range of twenty minutes. Three race sets were also used with the competitors free to adjust their shroud lengths on the Z420s. After racing, the sailors were treated to an awesome BBQ courtesy of the Naval Academy Sailing Social Committee. Several protests and breakdowns were filed resulting in two DSQs and three granted breakdowns. A huge thank you to guest PRO Dina Kowalyshyn and volunteer Juliette Thompson for running races, moving marks, and scoring all divisions from the water. Another big thank you to the coaches for hearing protests between sets and after sailing. Conditions for tomorrow look similar to today with big breeze forecasted.
Day two of the Navy Fall regatta was very similar to day one with a brisk Northwesterly breeze but slightly chillier temperatures. Sailors were sent out onto the Severn River just off of the RCC and racing got underway at approximately 1000. Three races were completed in a building breeze of about 15-18 knots with puffs into the lower 20s. At around 1130, the fleets were sent in for a lunch break. Racing resumed at 1245 and an additional three races were completed to round out the 15 race series before 1400. All courses were trapezoids utilizing three-race rotations and the ability to adjust shroud length in the Z420s. A handful of breakdowns occurred throughout the day, particularly in the Laser divisions. A big thank you to our guest PRO Dina Kowalyshyn and volunteer RC member Juliette Thompson for running races and scoring from the water. Another thank you to coaches for hearing protests. Congratulations to Yale for winning the 2014 Navy Fall Interconference.

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.
