Sailors arrived to Coast Guard for the Open ACC Championship. A southeasterly breeze filled in around noon allowing for 8 races in each division. The breeze fluctuated in direction and velocity forcing the race committee to make many course changes. Thank you to the host of Coast Guard sailors for running races. One protest was heard resulting in a disqualification in race 7A.
Sunday brought different conditions to competitors; a 6-10 kt northerly breeze with plenty of ebbing current. Generally sailors had to sail to the left side upwind to avoid the current. 6A and 6B races were completed with a protest and redress filed. A stray windward mark forced a resail of race 9B and Yale was disqualified in race 14A. Congratulations to Harvard for winning the Open Atlantic Coast Championship. Thank you to Doug Clark and CGA sailors for running races, Bob Austin LaFrance for judging/umpire, Zach Blumenthal for social media, and Rob Migliaccio for photographs.
