Saturday: After a two hour wait for wind, the westerly filled and racing started with a steady 10 knot breeze and increasing flood. The name of the game was holding a lane off the starting line on a race to short tack the beach. The wind peaked at 15-17 knots and glorious sunshine ruled the afternoon, although temperatures never rose above 52 degrees. The final A-set was sailed in a early ebb; A-division complete 6 races, B-division completed 4 races. Race length averaged 19 minutes. One protest was filed resulting in a DSQ.
Sunday: All the boats were capsizing, and the skies were grey; California dreaming, on such a winter's day. A late winter storm made its way into the region in the early morning hours. The wind blew from the bizarre southerly direction making for an offshore wind which was shifty, puffy and unpredictable. To further complicate matters, a moderate cross current ran on the lower half of the course (but not the upper part which was protected by the break wall and shoreline). The windward mark was tucked very close to shore because the wind was much stronger (and potentially too strong) further offshore. Winds peaked in the mid-twenties in gusty squalls, but were generally in the 10-15 range. No protests were filed.
Special thanks to Event Chair Mark Adams and his RC team (Kevin Sullivan, Peter Dennis, Rusty Morgan, Mike Kalin) the Stanford coaches (John Vandemoer and Frank Ustach) and undergrads (there were many) who also volunteered for race committee). Also thanks to judges Vicki Sadoro, Katie Maxim, Dana Sack, Don Wieneke.

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.
