Racing began at about 1100 hours with a steady breeze out of the northwest at 14-16 knots with occasional high gusts. The courses were mostly W4s and a few W6s and the last race of the day a W8. The first races were quick, so the course was lengthened and due to only 7 teams, the subsequent races were 23-25 minutes in length. Sea conditions were a sometimes surfing 1-2 foot seas at our outer deep water sailing area off St. Mary's Point on Long Island Sound. Due to the 1.5 mile distance from our docks, rotations were off the rotation mini-barge. After the third race, rotation efforts were abandoned due to rough conditions. Several boats capsized, some multiple times, with Sacred Heart withdrawing after the third race. Racing concluded at 0230 hours. It was a full day of sailing in strong breezes.
