The Potomac River provided sporty conditions and 8 races for the first ever GW Women's Invitational. Due to low tide racing was held North of Washington Sailing Marina at Haines Point. We had plenty of spectators both on land and on the water enjoying the 80 degree and sunny weather. We had a fantastic 15-25mph S-SW breeze, gusts over 30mph, and a 1-2 foot chop for our fifteen competitors. There were zero protests filed, and only a few capsizes.
Thank you to the GW undergraduates who ran great races, Georgetown Sailing for lending us motorboats, and the very helpful coaches who helped as coach/support/rescue boats. Tomorrow is a 10:00am report time to finish the final 7 races!
Five races were completed on the final day of the GW Women's Invitational. It was a good bit colder too for the racing held just outside of Washington Sailing Marina. A side current and shifty NE breeze at 10-12kts with gusts in the teens made for challenging racing. After five races it was determined that the racing area was too shallow to continue racing.
Thank you to all of the competitors, coaches, Georgetown Sailing and GW undergraduates who made this a great regatta!

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.
