On Saturday morning, competitors arrived at Sail Sand Point to find puffy and shifty breeze from the south of 5 knots. The breeze built steadily throughout the day, bringing rain along with it and reaching 15 knots in the late afternoon. The variable conditions kept competitors on their toes and made for some close and exciting racing.
Managing to maintain a fair course in notoriously shifty southerly breeze, the race committee got the sailors through 8 complete races on Saturday. The University of Washington led at the end of the first day, followed by Western Washington University just 4 points behind.
Despite the dismal forecast, Sunday morning greeted the competitors and race committee with a promising southeasterly breeze of about 5 knots. Throughout the afternoon, the breeze gradually clocked further east and the race committee kept a fair course. The conditions remained somewhat sporadic and the racing intense throughout the 6 races which were sailed.
Thanks to PRO John Renehan and the entire team of volunteers on the Race Committee for running a fun and fair event, and to the competitors who made the trip to Seattle for the weekend.
