Sailors arrived at Morris Yacht & Beach Club to a cold and windy fall morning. Racing started at 10:00 AM off the point of City Island in a 12-15 knot northerly. After the first set in each division, the breeze shifted right and began piping down from long island sound at around 17-20. A mix of W4s and W3s were sailed to expedite the long upwind rotation. Racing continued until 5:00 P.M. and 8 races were sailed in each division despite a very spread out fleet.
Many thanks to Fordham Sailors Thomas Capozzi, Eamonn Austin, and Jacqueline Tobin for braving the conditions on the RC boat and to all the Fordham and Columbia Sailors for their help.
Sailors were greeted to a much lighter 6-8 knot northerly to begin the day. Racing began at 9:45 off the point of City Island. W3s were again used for the second race of each set to expedite rotations. A shifting breeze ranging from 3-8 and significant current made for many course changes and difficult racing. Four races were sailed in each division and racing concluded just after 2:00 P.M. when the timing of rotations and deteriorating conditions made it unlikely to complete a final 1-1 set. Congratulations to the Tufts Jumbos for their close win over the home team.
Many thanks to Eamonn Austin, Jacqueline Tobin, and Thomas Cooper for their work on the RC boat and timely Techscore updates. Thanks again to the rest of the Columbia and Fordham teams for taking time away from their weekends to help run a successful regatta and to Morris Yacht & Beach club for their hospitality.
