MCSA Sloop Championship


Saturday, September 15:

The Race Committee postponed until 10:30 when the wind came in from the NE at 4.6 to 7 knots which was enough to make headway against the current in the Detroit River. Race 1 was twice around a windward leeward course with a start in the middle of the course. Three of the boats did not make the 1 hour time limit and were scored DNF. The wind increased a little for the second race which the RC shortened to once around. After a lunch break, the third race was sailed in decreasing wind once around the course. The wind decreased enough that the Race Committee decided to cancel racing for the rest of the day just be fore four o'clock.

Indiana #1 was leading with 5 points, followed by Michigan State and Hillsdale each with 10 points.
