Seneca Lake dished out a little bit of everything for the 14 races sailed today at the 2017 War Memorial Regatta.
Racing started in a big southerly blow of 20-24 knots sustained with higher gusts. Three foot waves made for excellent surfing conditions and exciting runs.
Midday the breeze shifted to the South-Southwest and backed off to an ideal 10-14 knots under sunny skies. The wind continued to shift to the west and died later in the afternoon. Racing was called at 4:45pm.
Thanks to Doc Sullivan and Larry Sill for hearing protests. Ben Mohney and Patrick Kana did an excellent job running races with the help of the HWS sailors.
Four races in A and six races in B were sailed in flat water conditions with a 8-12 knot breeze from the north. Racing was extremely tight and exciting.
Congratulations to the teams moving forward to the ACC's.
