Sailors were greeted with strong North-West winds this morning. A windward leeward course was set just outside of our mooring field, and racing commenced at 10:11 AM. The winds swiftly built, with sustained velocities in the low 20's. This wind strength from the North-West on our lake creates considerable chop/waves. This chop and the wind made racing difficult, especially in C division where more than half the fleet was unable to finish the races in the Badger Techs, which are difficult to control in breeze. As the wind built more, racing was postponed and then called off for the day at 2:30 as even the A and B divisions were experiencing difficulty maintaining control of their 420s. With just 4 races completed in A and B division and 2 in C division, UW Badgers 1 are in the lead with Northwestern Wildcats 1 nine points behind.
The breeze was moderate when racing started at 9:50, but the breeze steadily died over the next two hours. We were only able to do two races in C division, two races in A division, however we were unable to complete anymore B or C division races due to the wind completely shutting off. Thus the regatta ended with just four races in each division. There were no protests. A huge thank you to Terry and Patti McMahon for doing Race Committee, Dennis Bartley and Matt Younkle for judging for the event, and the Wisconsin sailors who helped run the event.
