Saturday morning's opening ceremony and skipper's meeting were just the start of the fun as women's squads from UGA, Georgia Tech, Florida State, and the host NC State Wolfpack hit the water just after 10:30. The morning dew burned off quickly and competitors were greeted with sunny skies, and a SW breeze between 6 and 8 mph for the first few races.
Around midday the wind dropped off but returned just before the lunch break and the Race Committee was able to complete 8 races on the first half of the day. After some expert grilling and lunch provided by the Sailing Club at NC State, sailors returned to the lake. Race organizers were able to complete another rotation and three races, and were well into the 12th race of the day before the wind left us completely.
Sailing in a combined fleet, sailors from Georgia Tech jumped out to an early lead and didn't look back, while there was tight competition for the second podium spot between the host NC State Wolfpack, UGA Bulldogs and the Florida State Seminoles. Sailors were presented with special 3D-printed FJ trophies for the three podium spots. Congrats to GT for the win, as well as all of the competitors for great racing and true Corinthian spirit. Thanks to the race committee, regatta volunteers, sponsors, supporters, and friends for helping put on a great regatta!
