Saturday was a great day of racing in Newport, featuring a 12-15 kt Easterly which slowly faded as the day went on. Spectating and coaching was convenient, with a course set right next to the Fort Adams basin. Tomorrow, we expect to move the course north into the bay with the W/SW forecast. 8 races were completed in both divisions, leaving 6 races to complete on Sunday. Thank you to Caroline King '21 for assisting with R/C, and to Sean Crandall '23, Grace Vincens '20 and Peter Cronin '22 for helping on shore.
We will hear protests immediately following racing today, including one from yesterday that we were unable to hear. Protest hearings will take place in the Wallace Building (green building near FJ dock) and will begin 15 minutes after the last FJ returns to the dock. We ask that all teams wait near the FJ dock & Wallace Building at the end of the day until protest hearings are complete.
Another great day of sailing in Newport! 6 races were sailed in a gusty westerly, ranging from 10 to 20 kts, that slowly shifted W/SW by the last set. Thanks to Caroline King '21 and Sean Crandall '23 for assisting with race committee, and also to Lexi Pline, our event photographer for the day. Congrats to URI for winning the 2023 Sister Esther Trophy!
