MAISA Laser Elimination


Saturday, September 23:

The Eliminator took place today in classic Annapolis fashion. Sunny, 85 degrees, motor boats a plenty and fickle winds. Race one was sailed in a light northwesterly in the Severn River before the breeze shifted due north forcing race committee out to the entrance of Back Creek where three more races were sailed in 6-8 knots before lunch. After lunch, the wind shifted even further right, and continued to die. The fleet took a leisurely cruise out past Greenbury Point to sail two more races in a dying easterly. Two requests for redress were filed for breakdowns, one was awarded. Thank you to Juliet Thompson and a whole host of midshipmen for helping out on Race Committee, and Conner Blouin and Billy Martin for hearing the request for redress. Hopefully we will find the wind tomorrow morning.

Sunday, September 24:

This morning races were started in a 6-8 knot northerly in Whitehall Bay. Four races were sailed as the breeze slowly died all morning. A fifth race was attempted and abandoned on the second beat when boats could no longer make progress against the current. Sailors went to shore for a brief lunch break, then towed around Annapolis harbor searching for the wind. We never found it. Congratulations to Max Guerriero from Navy for winning the MAISA Laser Eliminator and to the top 6 boats for moving on to the Carl Van Duyne.
