It was a warm, windy, and wild day on Upper Mystic Lake for Central Series 4 @ Tufts. In a Combined division format seven races were held before excessive carnage ended the festivities. Wind began at SW 10-15 but built to SW 15-25 with higher gusts. The course began as a modified windward-leeward before lunch. During lunch Ken led a discussion on heavy air Lark technique and starting in wind shifts. After lunch the course changed to a lake-touring zig-zag with a mile of high speed reaching in between two longs beats. It was clear early BU was the best team but others improved as the day went on.
Thanks to BU coach Cam Fraser for helping out in a number of ways including rescue. Photos posted on NEISA facebook tonight. PRO Ken Legler

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
