The first races of the SAISA Open started just after 10am on Saturday. Teams were treated to sunny skies and an 8 knot northeast to east wind. 4 A and B races were completed before the wind began to taper down. A division attempted several starts and 1 race, but all were abandoned. Eventually the wind filled in from the west and 2 more races in each division were completed. The racing was in breeze ranging from 8-4 knots though out the day. Small shifts were present and the best teams obviously used them to their advantage. All races were W4s. After racing SAISA held it's annual meeting. Minutes will be published soon.
Sunday had a much lighter forecast than Saturday but by 9:45am teams were racing in a 6 knot northeast wind. A division completed 2 W4 races. B division was sent out and completed one W4 race as the wind began to die. There was a small break on the water as the course was shortened and the sailors waited for a little more wind. Finally more wind arrived and the race began. By the middle of the first downwind though the wind was extremely light. The sailors finished the W3 course as the wind finally died. A small zephyr appeared as the sailors were rotating but it quickly died. The regatta was called and everything packed up. Congrats to the Cougars for the win, and thanks to all the Eckerd sailors for helping to run the regatta.
