Sailing in the upper Narragansett Bay was delightful on Saturday with good spectator views from Rhode Island Yacht Club. The prevailing Southwesterlies started light and increased up to 9 knots with some pronounced gusts along with choppy 3-4 foot seas. The chop caused some marks to drag and one race was resailed due to the committee boat dragging anchor during a starting sequence. Six A races and four B races were completed.
Another beautiful sailing morning greeted the competitors with cloudy skies, warm southerlies of 7-9 kts, flood tidal currents, and eager competitors. Starting with B Division, a total of four B races and two A races were sailed on Sunday. Coincidentally with Patriots kick-off, expected high winds, rain, and high chop arrived swiftly, caused abandonment. Two protests were filed. After review by protest committee, both protests were denied, largely because penalty turns were taken on the water.
