Very nearly skunked!! Only one A rotation successfully made it out in the morning Northerly before it the light wind pulled a 180 degree shift and died. B division made several valiant attempts at sailing the new breeze but were soundly beaten back by the current! Racing was postponed ashore, where Drexel Sailors de-rigged a couple boats and hosted "hiking wars" and other creative races! After a final attempt to get B division out, racing was ultimately abandoned for the day around 1500 as no breeze settled in to get boats out again.
The wind gods delivered Sunday! Morning breezes far exceeded the initial forecast of 5 knots with 10 knots delivered out of the ENE. Racing commenced with B division and never stopped other then brief postponements to square the line. Winds built into the teens as the day went on but thankfully held the same direction leading to expedited rotations. 8 complete rotations were sailed to complete the regatta round robin. The races were complete around 1445 With the Drexel 1 team carrying the day with their home current advantage! Many thanks to the sailors for getting in and out with minimum delays, to Wahoo's Tacos who provided a Cinco de Mayo lunch to all the teams in attendance, and as always a thank you to Corinthian Yacht Club and the staff who help us host our events every year.
