Sailors arrived to a rainy and brisk fall morning at Eugene Yacht Club on the Fern Ridge Reservoir. Races were postponed due to windless conditions for several hours, but the wind started to fill in around 12:30, so sailors hit the water. First races happened around 1 pm, and conditions were roughly 8-12 knots well into the afternoon. Wind shifted slightly and called for some replacement of marks from time to time, but overall sailors were able to get 8 races under their belts for Day 1.
Day 2 brought heavy wind, white caps, and capsizes. Wind came from the southwest, hitting speeds of almost 30 knots. Sailors headed out onto the lake, and tried to get some starts in. Race marks drifted and had to be adjusted many times before A Fleet was finally underway. The first race yielded only one capsize, but every boat finished. In the midst of the second race for A Fleet, 4 more boats took a spill, and the wind and chop were not letting up and built even more. In the interest of everyone's safety, races were called and B Fleet did not get a chance to get any races in, so scores from Day 2 did not count. Everyone returned to shore just as it started raining again, and teams packed up a bit early for the trips home. Not the ending sailors hoped for, but full of action nonetheless.
