NEISA Fundamental Symposium


Saturday, September 17:

Successful first run of the NEISA Fundamental symposium. Not much wind though. For the racing, a tough day for race managers as the wind gusts would never last more than five minutes before shifting and dying. While MIT had ENE most of the time, the wind at the lake kept trying to fill in South. One gust hit about nine knots from the WSW while MIT, five miles away, had ENE 9. Alas that gust only held for half a leg. In the end a few races were held in a SE wind of 3-5.

Ashore, Ken held the symposium with the following topics: Procedural Rules, responsibilities to one's teammates, basics of starting, FJ vs. 420, roll tacking and roll gybing, and how to stay out of fouls. We also had a slide show on college sailing running concurrently with the symposium in the morning and slides of both divisions racing in the afternoon, to be posted on Facebook via:

Many thanks to the Tufts sophomores that helped everything run smoothly especially Leo Terry who was PRO dealing with ridiculous conditions.
