Warm temps nearing 80 degs in St. Petersburg for the USF Women's Intersectional. The first races were sailed in a dying northeasterly. While expectations were that it would completely glass off until the afternoon seabreeze, that was not the case. As the marks were being gathered to head in, a light but sailable southeasterly filled in for the next set. The wind continued clocking, with the next set in a southerly, and then a southwesterly, and finally a freshening westerly, building to 10 knots.
Hawaii jumped out to an early lead, but later in the day USF and Charleston charged back. After 10 A division and 10 B division races, all W4, the three schools were separated by 2 points.
The morning easterly was too light for racing, but too persistent to permit an early seabreeze. After a 4 hour delay, the course was moved into Bayboro Harbor, and 3 A and 3 B races were sailed, all W5, in a light 3-5 knot northeast breeze.
Hawaii held off a strong challenge from Charleston to win the regatta, while USF fell to third.
