Rainier Cup


Saturday, April 14:

Racing got underway shortly after 10am in an 8-10 knot westerly. Drier weather meant the current was less intense than last season, but certainly still a factor on the race course. The breeze continued to build through the first A/B set and was up to the high teens by the time A fleet came out for race 3/4. As B fleet took to the course, the winds began to really build and peaked in the mid to high 20's. It didn't last long though and by mid afternoon the winds had died back to 12-14 knots. 6 race were sailed in each division on a modified windward leeward course. One redress was heard resulting in breakdown points

Sunday, April 15:

Sailors arrived early hoping for more of the ideal conditions from Saturday, but the gorge wasn't as kind. A battling convergence held the west winds back until after noon when a light 4-6 finally filled across the river. Racing resumed shortly before 1300 in a building 6-8 knots. Two mroe race were sailed in each fleet before the day was done.

A huge thanks to all our volunteers and to CGRA for the amazing facilities! Congratulations to UW, this year's Rainier Cup winners
