Hawkeye Invitational


Saturday, March 26:

The first day of the HAWKEYE INVITE 2016 was a rather cloudy day for the Indiana Hoosiers, Iowa State Cyclones, Iowa Hawkeyes, Michigan Wolverines, Minnesota Gophers, and UW-Milwaukee Panthers sailors. A Fleet began the day with the wind hailing from the S/SxSE direction and slowly shifted to SW by the end of the day. Between races, everyone bundled up and bantered through the cold 4C-7C weather. The constant 11mph wind with 15mph gusts, in the form of 90-degree shifts, allowed for a competitive atmosphere. A jib became defective in the race 1A, but it was replaced by the end of the race after they finished. A fleet completed races 1A to 8A and B Fleet completed the races of 1B-6B. A teams photo was taken.

Sunday, March 27:

After a well-deserved sleep, the sailors gathered for the final day of the HAWKEYE INVITE 2016. B Fleet began the day, catching up to A Fleet. The wind woke up on the other side of the bed and flew in from the NW, speeding in at 15 mph. It drizzled for a bit in the first few hours, but by the time A fleet went out to sail their last 9A-10A it had stopped. The racing concluded and while the teams helped take down and roll the sails, we quickly got scoring wrapped up. By the time the Race Site was looking more like it did on Saturday morning, pre-arrival of the sailors, scoring was completed. Awards were given for 1st and 2nd place in A and B Fleet and 1st through 3rd Overall.
