Saturday greeted the sailors sunny, warm and with very light breeze.After an hour postponement the first race was started on Crab Bank in a 5-8 mph southerly that pretty much locked in for the day. Although the breeze was fairly steady and straightforward the current added an exciting dimension. In the bottom 1/3 of the course the current was right to left while the top 2/3 were straight down the rhumb. But all 10 races in each division were still completed by 3:30pm.
Sunday the breeze was still from the south but a nice 8-12 and puffs to 15. The first race was started on time in the river right under the Yorktown. All 8 races were completed by 11:30 in some rather spectacular conditions! Congrats to the Charleston Cougars for their victory and thanks to all the Cougars who worked so hard to make the regatta a success!
