After a wind delay to start the morning, Cayuga Lake delivered great sailing conditions. We launched at 11am in a light northerly around 5kts and it freshened up throughout the day to a solid 12kts. We had two events running simultaneously: the Cayuga Lake Invite in the WhiteCap FJ's and the Big Red Invite in the WhiteCap 420's. Ten Races were held in each fleet with racing ending just before 5pm. All races were W4. Two protests were filed: HWS filed against Penn in the FJ's which was withdrawn at the end of the day. HWS filed against SUNY in the 420's resulting in a RAF. The conditions really delivered and was a good taste of the competition we will see this year.
Today again started out with a short delay until the Northerly filled in. It filled with about 5kts, and we completed 2 races in the 420's and 1 race in the FJ's. The breeze faded for about 30 minutes or so, and then came back in quite nicely around 8-10kts. We were able to complete the 14 races in each fleet at 1:10pm. One protest was filed, SUNY against KP in the FJ fleet, but was dropped at the end of racing. Thanks to Johnny Norfleet and Katherine Jones for helping out moving marks as needed. Thank you to HWS for bringing down a skiff to get coaches on the water. Another great fall competition weekend on the lake in beautiful sailing conditions!
