Sailors arrived to a glassy Long Island Sound this morning. A patchy northerly faded throughout the morning with all wind readings below the minimum 3 kts.
A seabreeze began filling around 1500 and racing got underway shortly thereafter. Both race courses featured a shifty SWerly breeze at 6-8 knots with 10-15 degree shifts. The breeze slowly clocked left and settled throughout the afternoon, to 10 knots out of the due South by the final races.
Kings Point holds a narrow 5 point lead over the Cornell Big Red going into the second day.
Report time for Sunday is pushed back to 1000, given the very lackluster breeze forecast for the morning. Please see the SI Amendment for an updated schedule for the day.
Day two began with a delayed report time of 1000 due to forecast. Breeze was 2-5 its from the southwest, shifting right all afternoon. Light showers brought variable pressures, and Long Island sound current made it a tough race course.
Fleet competed two races in marginal conditions to conclude KP Open Invite.
Congrats to the Cornell, SUNY, and Kings Point for securing podium finishes.
Thank you to Kings Point Sailing Team for all their hard work supporting 3 simultaneous events.
