Great conditions met competitors for the Veitor Trophy hosted by the US Coast Guard Academy. A sailed FJ's and B sailed 420's for a total of 20 races for the day. Wind ranged from 6-20 knots from the N/NW for some shifty conditions at times. With the oversized moon the tide was the strongest I've seen running around 2.5 knots in the channel. All courses were a W-4 with a windward offset and leeward gates. One redress was granted and no protests were relayed to the RC as many boats did their penalty turns on the water. Thanks to all the Coast Guard cadets for running a great event.
One race was sailed in a dying Northerly which resulted in a 8 boat protest at the finish pin which ended with one DSQ. Thanks to Colin and Erin for hearing the protest. Teams waited for a few hours before a beautiful southerly filed in the afternoon. 6 more races in each division were sailed for a total of 32 races. All courses were W-4 with windward offset and leeward gates. Final results can be found at the following link. Congrats to the young guns at Boston College for winning the 2011 Veitor Trophy.
