MAISA South Spring Qualifier, 2012


Saturday, March 31:

Light breezes and an approaching front kept everyone waiting in the morning. After a lunch break, the A Fleet headed back out. After another hour long delay, a light 3-5 knot breeze filled in from the southwest and two races were completed. After a quick rotation, B Fleet was treated to a 8-10 knot shore breeze from the northeast. B Fleet sailed three races, which brought sailing to a close as we reached the time limit.

One protest was heard resulting in a DSQ for Hampton (Rule 42)

Sunday, April 1:

Sunday once again presented some challenging conditions, with light winds and a strong current flowing in the James River. After another hour long delay, a south western breeze began to fill in. After several attempt to start, the breeze finally settled and A Fleet completed two more races. B Fleet then sailed one race to get the rations back in sync. With a steady but light breeze, two more races were sailed in each division before the time limit was reached.

Congratulations to: University of Virginia, William and Mary, and Hampton University for qualifying for the America. Congratulations as well to Christopher Newport University, George Washington University, and University of Maryland for qualifying for the Grant.

Thank You to the W&M Sailors for getting the site and boats prepared and for their help throughout the weekend.

Special thanks to Coach Max Plarr for his help with the on the water RC, and to Dan Winters and Skip Kovacs (Regatta MAISA Rep.)for hearing the protest.
