A light Northerly wind straight down the valley was enough to propel the turbo-charged Larks around the track for several races in each division. After 4 A races B went went out for two but 4 B was abandoned when the wind shifted to the East. The Easterly was not stable enough for more racing. Big thanks to Jack Duncan'19 for running races with the help of a port-line crew, score keeper, and dock crew.
Hot soup and cookies were provided by the Nickerson family as they do each year, and a Parent's Reception followed racing at the end of the day on the top floor of the Bacow Sailing Pavilion.
A medium but variable SE wind kelp sailors guessing on Sunday as PRO Jack Duncan'19 cranked out several more races in steady cold rain. Tufts B division sailors got hot to pull away from Brown, Coast Guard and the Jumbo Ladies team. The wind gusts increased to over 15 knots which capsized a few less experienced sailors.
Many thanks again to Jack Duncan and a team of undergrads. Julia Fuller'17 was also on hand to hear protests but none ensued. Dockmaster was Tufts co-captain Matt Galbraith, score keeper was Marisa Permatteo. A few rain soaked undergrads shared duties in the port-line to virtually eliminate general recalls.
Great to see an out-of-conference team from South Florida stretch their legs in the Turbo Larks.

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.
