Racing got off quickly in the morning on Saturday. Temperatures were quite cold in the morning, but warmed up into a very pleasant day of sailing. We began the day with a moderate, shifty south-west breeze, which built steadily throughout the day. As the sun began to set, the wind dwindled as well, leading to only one race in the last A set. In total, 7 A races and 6 B races were completed. Big thanks to our Chicago Yacht Club-based Race Committee team, led by PRO Rick Lillie, and to our protest committee of Betsy Altman, Dennis Bartley, and Geoff Pedrick. Two protests and one request for redress were heard, resulting in one score change from one of the protests. Racing will resume bright and early tomorrow morning.
Racing got off to an early start on Sunday as well, with slightly lighter wind than the previous day. Wind remained shifty and moderate throughout the day, providing exciting racing. Temperatures were unusually high for mid-November, and racers had a beautifully warm and sunny day of racing. Several protests were heard, as well as a request for redress, which resulted in a disqualification and an average-points score. In total, twelve races were completed in each division, just shy of the fourteen race rotation. Big thanks to our race officials and umpires again. Congratulations to Minnesota Gophers 1 and Wisconsin Badgers 3, in 3rd and 2nd places respectively, and congratulations to Wisconsin's Badgers 1 for winning the MCSA Fall Championship, earning a spot on the MCSA Graduate Officers' Bowl.

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.
