MAISA Women's Championship


Saturday, April 22:

The first day of the 2017 MAISA Women's Championship was overcast and a bit chilly, with rain on and off throughout the day. The course was set in the mouth of the Severn River, just inside Greenbury Point, with coaches and alternates in coach boats on the water. The wind ranged from 5-12 knots from the northeast with big shifts and pressure changes. A division started in Z420s and B was in FJs through the first nine races, before the fleets switched for race 10. PRO Steve Podlich and his race committee team did a fantastic job of efficiently running quality races. We did 6 races per division, took a lunch break and came back out for 4 more. No protests, breakdowns or requests for redress were filed, but we'd like to thank Maureen Mills, Dick Morin and Andrew Cole for being here ready to hear them if they had been filed. 7 races remain to determine the top 9 who will represent MAISA at the Women's Nationals and to crown our conference champion.

Sunday, April 23:

On Sunday, the wind started out from the northeast and we started sailing in the mouth of the Severn River near the entrance to Back Creek. The first few races were held in 5-10 knots, but the pressure slowly dropped to below the minimum after race 15A. We came back to the dock for a lunch break and held onshore while we waited for the wind to fill back in. At 2:30 a light southeast breeze filled and we set a course in the Severn Rive off the Robert Crown Center. We were able to sail race 15 B before the wind died again and the time limit eventually expired. Congratulations to the top 9 who advance to the Women's National Championship and to the St. Mary's College of Maryland Seahawks for claiming the 2017 MAISA Women's Championship.
