The 12th running of the George Morris trophy began after a delayed report time due to crew races. The race committee managed to squeeze one race out of a fading northerly where A division showed off their light air boat handing. After that wind faded, sailors waited on shore for an extended wind delay.
A southeast breeze filled in after 1 pm, builiding to 4-8 knots and clocking to the east over the course of the afternoon. 10 races were completed in total, 6 in A division and 4 in B. No protests were filed.
Tomorrow will be a standard 9:30 report time, and B division will have the first start.
Sailors got to experience the Charles at its finest today. For the first 6 races, the mean wind direction was somewhere near a northerly. Huge velocity changes and directional shifts of over 90 degrees spread out the fleet. The breeze topped out at 10 knots and bottomed at 0.
The easterly sea breeze tried to develop but never fully settled. The race committee managed squeeze in a race in the easterly for A division but were unable to get in the matching race for B division.
Congratulations to the Jumbos for winning the 12th running of the George Morris trophy!
