Great breeze from the north built all day, and racing was spirited with an ample fleet of 16 boats from eleven schools from as far away as the Carolinas. Nine races in both divisions makes things promising to sail all 12 with racing slated to conclude Sunday morning.
On Oct. 22 and 23, eleven schools fielded a fleet of 16 boats for a fall invitational in Winter Park, Fl. on the friendly confines of Lake Virginia at Rollins College . Onshore, the atmosphere was sunny and friendly, while on the water, it was competitive. In particular on Day 1 (Saturday Oct. 22), when a cool October breeze built all afternoon, the windward mark was crowded, contested, and not for the feint of heart. With the Women's Championship and Open Championship to be held next week at Rollins, a number of teams were thinking ahead to next week. But on Sunday, when the dust settled and two divisions each completed their twelfth races, JU and Eckerd remained within striking distance while top of the heap stood USF. The Rollins Tars extend a big thanks to all who came and made it such a great weekend, particularly NC State and the Citadel for "going the distance" by traveling so far to compete.
