The Fall Foliage didn't disappoint. Although the colours weren't at their peak this year due to the weird summer weather, they were getting there. Great breeze greeted the sailors, and we were all ready to hit the water running only to have a typical Mendums shift or two or three or more. The course was rotated 90 degrees and continued to be shifty throughout the day with both velocity increases and decreases and oscillating shifts. Thanks to the 'mark boat coaches', Rob Dresser/Dartmouth, and Jeff Bresnahan/CC for moving the marks, as that needed to be done often. A special thanks to Mike Horn (it was great to see him) for being the ICSA/NEISA rep.
Four races were sailed in each division as the first two hours were spent moving and moving and moving marks, etc. One capsize, many spins for exoneration at marks and boat to boat contact and no protests. It was a pleasure seeing sailors take honour seriously.
Congratulations to the Wildcats 1 team of Sam Harris/Scott Senatore and James Sullivan/Trixie Williams for winning the Peak Foliage regatta.

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
