After a long, long delay waiting for breeze, racing began at around 3:15pm for the NEISA Monotype Trophy/Open Singlehanded Championship and the NEISA Women's Singlehanded Championship at the Ted Turner '60 Sailing Pavilion at the Edgewood Yacht Club. Five races on W4 courses for both fleets were sailed in a building southerly, which started out at 5-8 knots and built to 10-14 knots by the last two races. It was a beautiful day out there and the racing was really tight despite the 25 minute races.
A huge thanks to the Edgewood Yacht Club for supporting this event and helping with powerboats and marks, and to Coast Guard, Harvard, Roger Williams, and URI for bringing powerboats. Thanks as well to Zim for providing ILCA charter boats and support, and to Mike Kalin for being the NEISA Rep. Thank you to Judges Patrick Shanahan (Brown '19), Gabe Hannon (Brown '20) and Hannah Steadman (Brown '20). Three requests for breakdown points were awarded to Dartmouth, Tufts, and Yale.
Lots more racing on Sunday with a 9:30am report time.
