Sailors arrived to the Robert Crown Center this morning to cloudy skies and a very light and shifty Easterly breeze. After a short skippers meeting, the fleet was sent out to Annapolis Harbor just off of Bembe Beach. One race was completed in just over the 3 knot wind limit before the fleet was sent in for lunch. After lunch, more rain fell and the breeze went away for a while, so we postponed in the RCC until around 1600, when a light Northwesterly began to fill. The light NW breeze materialized into a substantial 10-15 knots, and three additional races were completed before racing was called for the day at around 1745. A big thank you to Ensign Killian Corbishley for moving marks around and to our judge Dillion Pavia for laying out the justice of the Racing Rules of Sailing on the water. Tomorrow's forecast is for somewhat light breezes out of the Northwest.
Sunday morning graced sailors with a bit more breeze than Saturday and sunnier skies, albeit some slightly chilly temperatures. The Radial fleet hit Annapolis Harbor this morning at 0930 in a puffy and very shifty Northeasterly breeze. Four races were completed, all W4s, in the harbor just off of Triton point before the breeze died to an unsailable level and the fleet was sent in for lunch at 1230. At around 1345, a light Northwesterly began to fill and the fleet was sent out onto the Severn River just off of the Robert Crown Center but unfortunately, that breeze faded before a race could get underway. The Northwesterly died and a Southeasterly filled and the course was then reset in the harbor, however one general recall prevented any additional races from being completed before the 1500 cut off time. In all, eight races were sailed over the weekend, all on a W4 course, and no protests were filed. The top 11 finishers, at minimum, advance and have until Tuesday, September 16th to accept or decline their spot at the Faye Bennet regatta. Another big thank you to Killian Corbishley, USNA '14, for picking up and putting down a lot of marks over the weekend and to Dillon Paiva for keeping things honest on the field.

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.
