Saturday was a gorgeous day for racing. Wind started off very light from the west but picked up to about 12 knots by the end of the day. There were a couple of large gusts and shifts that sailors had to deal with and adjust for. An inner-outer loop trapezoid was run, with FJ's on the outer loop and Fireflies on the inner loop. 10 races were completed in divisions B and C, and 8 races completed in division A.
One race (Race 8A) was abandoned and re-sailed due to a course error made by the RC. 1 boat was given redress; 2 protests were heard and one was thrown out. One protest was made due to a procedural infraction by the RC and resulted in the sailor receiving a 1 for his race while all other finishes were unaffected.
Northeastern would like to thank all of the competitors today for running a fun and fair race. We would like to thank Fran and Wally of the MIT staff for assisting with the regatta and breakdowns. Thank you to Diane Weidenacker, John Ingalls, and Fran Charles for being our judges today. Thank you to Coach Johnathan Farrar and the Northeastern sailors who came down to the docks to help: Luke Orchado and Scott Goodrich on RC, Fabrizio Petrucci and John Wehner on finish boat, Caitlin Cloonan and Jacob Miller on shore, and Zach Shapiro on scoring.
Dock call is 9:30 tomorrow and A fleet will start in FJ's.
Sunday started out cold and light. Around 10:00, the wind filled in from the east and steadied around 10 kts. Conditions were pretty steady for the Charles with some shifts coming from the right. Race 9B was abandoned and re-raced at the beginning of the day. Then, 5 races were sailed in A division and 3 races were sailed in B and C division. 13 races in total were completed in all divisions to finish off the regatta.

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
