Saturday: It was an excellent day for racing on the Cooper River with good breeze, air temps around 80 and sunny skies. We sailed 10 A races and 8 B races. The wind was shifting between the south and the southwest throughout the day. The wind velocity started out around 8 knots and built through out the day, maxing out at around 15-18 knots. We had a strong ebb tide (upwind current) for most of the day, but minimized general recalls by utilizing a pin boat and the 1-minute rule. All courses were windward leewards (4 or 5 legs), with offsets and gates.
Sunday: It was another great day for racing on the Cooper river, with conditions almost identical to yesterday. 7B and 5A races were completed on windward-leeward courses (3, 4 and 5 legs) with offsets and gates.
Thanks to our judges, Bob Bowden, Sarah Ashton, Noel Shriner and Maria Petrillo; the ICSA representative, David Dabney; Cathy Swanson for driving our photo/video boat; Sailgroove for providing video coverage; and PRO Ward Cromwell and the Charleston team for running great races.
And finally, a big thanks to our sponsors, LaserPerformance, Marlow, US Sailing, Sleep Inn of Mt. Pleasant, The Variety Store, The Cougar Club, and CofC Athletics.
Congrats to the Boston College Eagles on a great 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.
