This was the first regatta in Eckerd's new fleet of Whitecap FJs! They performed beautifully. Teams began racing in a light Northerly. The wind was very up and down with big shifts. After a short delay the seabreeze finally kicked in and competitors were greeted with steady wind and hiking conditions. Racing ended around 3:30 so that competitors could all attend the SAISA annual meeting. Charleston holds onto a narrow lead with Jacksonville and Eckerd close behind.
I wasn't there on Sunday but this is what I believe happened. The wind was out of the northwest but much stronger than the day before. Competitors were often caught off guard by large gusts. A total of 10 races were completed in each division. There was one protest which resulted in a DSQ and breakdown points were awarded when several tiller extensions came out of the tiller. Looks like we need more tape! There were many lead changes at the end of the regatta. By the time the dust settled Jacksonville came out on top with Eckerd and Charleston close behind. Thanks to all the competitors for coming out and enjoying all that Eckerd and St Pete have to offer.
