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.
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.

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.
