18 teams gathered at the BU boathouse at 10AM due to the delayed report time. Crew shells were off the water by 10:30 and the first race began around 10:50.
6 races were completed in each division. All courses were 4 legged windward/leewards with an offset and a gate. 3 protests were reported at the finish boat leading to 1 RAF and 1 protest being disallowed. Miraculously, their were zero breakdowns today!
Conditions were E-ESE breeze from 3-7 knots. The skies were overcast and temps peaked in the high 50s. Tommorow's forecast does not look pleasant -- high of 50 and rain. The lack of shelter on the BU changing dock will challenge teams mentally and physically.
Salve Regina leads after day one with Tufts and BU 10 and 20 points back respectively.
A few RP issues were noted for Harvard, Northeastern, and UVM.
Tommorow's report time is 9:30 AM.
6 More races were completed in each division. Racing began at 10:20 and competitors reached the dock after racing at 3:45.
All races today were W/L 4 legs. Winds ranged from 4-8 knots. The majority of the races today were sailed under overcast skies with temps around 45 degrees. The weather deteriorated as B division came down there final run.
No protests, or breakdowns were reported today.
Thanks to Terrier Undergrads Liz, Erica, and Trevor for helping "run the show". Boathouse staff Syrgey and Tom were also a huge help.
Congrats to Salve Regina on the win.
