Competitors arrived at scenic Lake Mascoma at 10:30 am on day one of the Hewitt Trophy. The race committee worked diligently and the first C Division race was completed in 3-5 knots out of the North East. Race 1B was started but then abandoned because of light breeze. Both divisions remained on the water in anticipation for the breeze to refill. However, the conditions did not improve and both fleets were sent in. Postponement lasted until 4:30 pm when the day was called.
Thank you to the RC and other Dartmouth personal for staying attentive in challenging conditions. Thank you to Chris Klevan for serving as the NEISA Rep. Thank you to all teams for your patience. Report time for Sunday is 9:30 am.
Sunday brought beautiful racing conditions on Lake Mascoma. Long shifts and blowing fog characterized the morning, followed by a period of unsettled light and shifty breeze, and then ended with a crisp Northerly for the last few races. Breeze direction was WNW to NNE. Seven races completed in A and B divison, 6 in C division, including a one, one, and one to finish the day.
Congratulations to the Big Green for protecting Ole' Massey and thanks to all of the teams who made the trip, including the Connecticut Camels and their efforts for a beach fire! Also big thanks to the Dartmouth Undergrad team who helped host the regatta, as well as PRO Nathaniel Johansson '18.
