Laser South


Saturday, September 7:

It was a tricky first day at the 2019 Laser South and Navy Women's Open. We began the day postponed ashore until a light 3-5 knot NW breeze filled in and we headed out into the Severn River. 2 Races were completed before a SE breeze began to fill and made the racing unstable. We came in for a short lunch break before heading out near Greenbury Point to race in a 4-8 knot SE breeze. It was puffy and shifty all day with significant powerboat chop. After 4 more Laser Races and 3 Z420 races, the conditions deteriorated to the point that racing was called for the day. A huge thanks to Janel Zarkowsky, Billy Martin, Brendan Shanahan and Max Plarr for hearing one protest and one request for redress.

Sunday, September 8:

Sunday started out with 3-5 knots of breeze out of the NW and close to a knot of current in the same direction. We set a course in the Severn River and ran 1 long, slow race before the wind got too light to keep sailing and we went in for a short lunch break. After lunch, we headed out to the Chesapeake Bay and races in a 4-8 knot ENE breeze. The wind held and we were able to complete 6 more 420 and 7 more Laser races, with the last start going off seconds before the cutoff time. Thanks to Bill Ward and Katja Sertl for hearing one protest and congratulations to the top 6 who advanced to the Carl Van Duyne MAISA Men's Singlehanded Championship.
