A steady 7 knot ENE breeze greeted the nine schools competing. Many of the schools chose to also enter Women's teams and/or JV teams, so the total number of boats on the line was seventeen, providing some valuable big fleet experience for the smaller schools. Sailing took place inside Bayboro Harbor, great for spectators, but the moderate chop made rotations tricky in the easterly.
The mid-afternoon was spent with all eyes glued on the radar for approaching thunderstorms. The first threat sent the fleet scurrying in, two capsizes in the gusty winds, but as it turned out, no lightning. The fleet was sent back out for a final set in the post-storm dying breeze. Races 7A, 8A, and 7B were sailed, but then a very large storm accompanied by lightning during 8B forced the abandonment of that race.
Congratulations to both of Eckerd's teams, tying for first and second places.
A huge thank you to the competitors, coaches, spectators, and to the USF sailors who helped run the regatta.

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.
