The sailors were met with a light 4-5 mph westerly breeze with racing starting at 10:15. The course was set in the river right under the USS Yorktown with an unusually light current. 6 challenging races were sailed before the breeze shut off leaving the race management team with the hopes of a nice predicted seabreeze. Though it took awhile.. At 3:15 a nice 8-10 southerly filled and a total of 9 sets were sailed in some relatively straight and square breeze. Congrats to the Usf Gators for a great day. CofC is second and Eckerd is third. Nice job to all the Cougars for a solid day of race management and some good mark moving! Tomorrow looks to be a nice day with a predicted southerly. Go Saisa!
Unfortunately the predicted southerly seabreeze never filled as predicted and the Cougar race management wrestled with a shifty light Westerly with puffs to 5 mph! And yes there was the typical Charleston flood current to spice it up. 3 sets were sailed before racing was cancelled for the day at 12:30. The C of C Cougars came back to a 1 pt victory over the Eckerd Tritons with the Florida Gators a close third (sorry for the mistake about their identity while leading last night!). Congrats to all the teams on sailing well in a tough series and thanks to the Cougar race team for managing a tough series... Jack Thompson led the gang Saturday and Lawson Williard was Pro Sunday-thanks to them and their patient race manage teams! Safe early travels back for all our Saisa teams!
