Providence College Invitational was held in upper Narragansett Bay from the Rhode Island Yacht Club. Shifting winds 10-16 knots from the prevailing Southwest direction, and temperatures in the low 70s, allowed for perfect mid October racing. Two divisions from eleven teams competed with Coast Guard Academy, Salve Regina, and Connecticut College dominating a series of close finishes for the day. Six races were completed per division. One breakdown by PC (shroud disconnection) resulted in one DNF and one DNS.
Day two of the Providence College Invitational saw totally different conditions from the previous day. A weather front brought colder temperatures and stronger winds from the completely opposite direction. The increased wind resulted in two capsizings. Four races per division were completed with Coast Guard finishing strong in both divisions to seize the team victory. Thank you to our PC Sailing Club volunteers as well as Brown sailing for use of their boat and Salve Regina Coach Ingalls for manning the mark boat.?
