The 74th Annual Professor Oberg Trophy was held on the Charles today in sporadic conditions, as usual. Light breeze in the morning filled into a brisk westerly, 5kts and building until the end of the day, with occasional rain squalls dampening the mood. No protests were filed. Divisions A and B sailed 8 races while C division sailed 9. Thanks to Head Coach Jonathan Farrar who ran races efficiently until 6pm. We want to extend a huge thank you to Fran and Ian for helping everything run smoothly on the dock. We’d also like to thank all the Northeastern Sailing Alumni who came out to honor alum Sean O’Blenis, who passed in late September this year, and to whom we dedicated the weekend. Dock call at 9:30am Sunday.
Sunday brought clear skies and heavy winds to the Charles. Winds WNW at 15mph gusting in the high 20s. Teams rigged storm jibs on the FJs and reefed mainsails on the Fireflies to keep things under control. An "X" course with two reaching legs was used instead of the traditional modified trapezoid. Sailed 4 races in A and B divisions and 3 races in C division to round out 12 races over the weekend. Many capsizes, but no breakdowns and no protests.
Thanks to Coach Jonathan Farrar for running a safe regatta in tough conditions. Especially huge thank you to Fran and Ian and all the MIT Dock staff without whom this regatta would not have been nearly as successful.
Congrats to Roger Williams University for winning the Oberg Trophy!

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.
