Sailors were greeted to a fresh 8-12 N/NW Breeze when they arrived to Morris Yacht & Beach Club. Racing began at 10:00 AM in Fordham's new fleet of Zim 420Es. Three race sets were utilized to minimize rotation time. As they day went on, the breeze shifted right into to a northerly and slowly built to about 16-18 by the end of the day. Despite a few delays from capsized teams, we were able to complete 9A and 6B Races. B division will start in the AM.
Thanks to all the Fordham and Columbia Sailors who helped put on the event and specifically to KJ Jones, Emma Archard, and Eamonn Austin for toughing out the day on the RC boat.
Boats hit the water at 9:30 in a 4-6 knot N/NW Breeze. The breeze shifted between N/NW and NE as it attempted to fill from the NE which led to some difficult races early in the day. Ultimately 3 B division races were completed in this breeze. As A went out on the water around 11:30, the breeze died and filled in from the east around 3-5 knots. Two races were attempted and ultimately cancelled in the patchy easterly. Racing was postponed ashore and ultimately cancelled at 2:00 when it became apparent the breeze would not fill in time to match A/B races.
Thanks again to the Fordham and Columbia sailors who helped run the event and to KJ Jones, Matt Cappetta and Thomas Capozzi for their help on the RC boat. Congrats to HWS for winning the Jesuit in convincing fashion, taking victories in both A and B division.

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.
