Saturday at Hoover sailing club was marked by beautiful warm weather, but light and very shifty wind. After a short postponement, the sailors went out. While the water was mainly glassy, a few puffs occasionally blew through and allowed the competitors to complete 2 rotations for a total of 8 races.
Tomorrow's forecast calls for the same amount of wind, and races will commence with race '5A'. With first, second and third all pretty close, the competition will be tough tomorrow!
While the sailors were ready to sail, the wind was not there. After an hour and half under AP, racing was abandoned.
Our top three teams in A, B and overall were the same and in the same order. With 23 points overall, we had University of Toledo who was following just 2 points behind Michigan State University. The winner of the regatta was one of MCSA's newest additions: University of Cincinnati with 15 points!
Thank you to everyone who came out and sailed this weekend! Especially thank you to the PRO and RC for getting in races despite the light air!
