In the first time in a long time, UM was able to host a regatta from our "new" (now several years old) site...the Miami US Sailing Center. This was mainly thanks to Ransom Everglades HS allowing us to use a fleet of their 420's in addition to our FJ's to have two fleets sailing at the same time (thus reducing the number of alternates we needed to float). So a huge thank you goes out to Ransom.
In typical Miami Biscayne Bay fashion, the wind came up to about 7-10 knts at 9:30-10AM from the east, and other than moving slightly to the right (10 degrees or so) stayed there all day. At the end there was one race at 12-13 knts, but in general it was very steady in both velocity and direction. So, with two fleets racing we were able to do 8 races for each fleet, W-L twice around, finish downwind, 20-25 minute races, and finish by 3PM (with a lunch break on the water). Temperature in the upper 80's, with water temperatures in the mid 80's...perfect small boat sailing weather.
The UM team came out strong to help with moving boats around, and we hope that this sets the stage for many more hosted events.

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.
