Wow! Fantastic breeze ranging from 9-14 knots all day with some stellar puffs, which oscillated all day returning to centre after the shifts the 'Rivah' is known for and were accompanied by several capsizes. UMass Amherst was a no show however 34 teams played all day. First, thanks go to Fran Charles who graciously came in on his day off to make certain we were all set. Mendmus is about 10 feet down and soon will be down 20 feet making hosting a challenge at the moment. Thanks also go to MIT's Hugh and Wally who were fantastic shore crew. Wally is a positive and unflappable a lesson from which we can all learn. Special thanks goes to CGA coach Doug Clark for serving as the NEISA rep. The top two teams not already qualified for the Captain Hurst will earn berths.
10 races were sailed in both inner and outer trapezoids. Fleets changed after 8 races. Teams sailed honourably exonerating when necessary. Two redress's were filed which will be hear Sunday morning. Teams who chose to enjoyed grilled hot dogs etc, for lunch and will start the day with Wildcat Muffins.
Reminder to all teams: please fill out the RP online forms, check rotations and make sure you sail the correct course. Chris Loder will be at the regatta in the morning to share a few works and enjoy the regatta.
BU leads with Conn hot on their heels.
Sunday started out as a docile day. Teams enjoyed Wildcat Muffins and juice as we all waited for the fickle wind on the river to appear. Just after lunch two A and two B races were sailed resulting in BU as the winner of the Chris Loder Trophy.
Thanks to River and Madison for running the finish and mark boat.
