Great breeze and racing today. Starting just after 11am, the breeze was 5-7 knots from the southwest, but shifted to the right and increased in pressure as the day went on. The men got nine races, while the women got seven races. There was one breakdown where redress was granted. Thanks so much to the jury and umpire, Sky Adams and Claire Hunt and to the Gaucho team for staffing the RC boats. Thanks to the coaches for helping with breakdowns. It's a close race between the top three in the men's division for the top two qualifying spots to the 2019 Singlehanded National Championship in Santa Barbara on November 9-10.
A very breezy (18-22 knots) and shifty day in Santa Barbara with big swell made for difficult course adjustment, but once all was in place the ladies got three races quickly in, while the men got four races in. The top three were close for the duration of the regatta as they fought it out for the top two spots. Cal State Long Beach's lone sailor loved the breeze and rattled off four bullets, while UCSB and Stanford duked it out for the second place spot. After an exciting last race then entailed some penalty turns, Stanford prevailed with UCSB on the outside looking in by two points. There was one breakdown where redress was filed and granted. Congratulations to Paul Didham (CSU Long Beach) and John Kirkpatrick (Stanford) on advancing to the Singlehanded National Championship held in Santa Barbara on November 9-10. Thank you very much to our umpires, Chris Weis and Claire Hunt, and the UCSB Gauchos for providing race committee.
