Competitors experienced a bit of everything over the course of the day. Racing began with light air from the SW. The current started ebbing shortly after racing started at 11am, and picked up steam throughout the day. Like really picked up steam (1.5-2 knots); this caused many boats to hit the leeward gate. There were some 15-20 degree shifts to keep things interesting on the race course too. Around 2 pm the sea breeze started to come in 12-15 knots. As it did, the waves and chop built. 6 races were sailed in each division. 2 protests were filed. One breakdown was awarded.
Sporty conditions ruled the day. Never dipping below 14 knots from the SSW, the competitors saw their mettle tested as the breeze increased to 17-19 with gusts in the low to mid-twenties. Many capsizes. 1 breakdown occurred after racing. No protests. Thanks to Diana Weidenbacker for helping to hear a protest from yesterday. Thanks to several RWU undergrads for doing a great job in the mark/safety boat.congrats to CGA on the W.
