2018 St. Francis Invite


Saturday, March 31:

The wind was around 6mph gusting to 8mph and out of the North when we got the first race off at 11:40am. It slowly and gradually shifted NW as it increased to 17-20mph maxing out around 3pm, and then shifted back more North as it decreased to 13-15mph for our last race around 4pm.

The tide was a low of 0.4ft at 7:20am, going to a high of 8.1ft at 1:19pm, and back to a low of 0.4ft at 7:33pm. So, the downwind flood in the morning and the upwind ebb in the afternoon were definitely factors on the race course.

10 Races in each division was sailed on W4 courses. A big thank you to Todd Vas Dias and the Stanford undergrads for running races. Also thank you to Andy Johnson for helping guide the regatta and hearing a protest.

Sunday, April 1:

The wind was around 5mph gusting to 6mph and out of the North when we got the first race off at 11:15am. It stayed relatively stable out of the North gradually increasing to 14-16mph maxing out around 2:30pm, and then shifted more West as it decreased to 12-14mph for our last race just before 3pm. We moved the course West about 35-40 degrees because of the big shift, and tried to get the 18A and 18B races off, but two general recalls left us without enough time.

The tide was a low of 0.2ft at 8:03am, going to a high of 7.8ft at 2:07pm, and back to a low of 0.9ft at 8:12pm. So, the downwind flood in the morning and the more or less upwind ebb in the afternoon were again factors on the race course on Sunday.
