The Polar Bears were happy to welcome Tufts and UVM to Harpswell Sound! After arriving to a nice northerly, the wind tried every direction before building into a solid southerly. The first round was completed in light and shifty breeze which was then contrasted by round three that presented strong current, chop, and breezier conditions.
Thank you to our awesome umpires (Erin Mullins '16, Mimi Paz '17, and Jack McGuire '17) and all the current Bowdoin sailors who helped keep racing going.
The southerly that filled at the end of Saturday kept its strength and allowed for two rounds to be completed right off the dock Sunday. This not only sped up rotations but also gave the spectators a great view and let everyone get home for an early supper. Although the forecast had alluded to a very breezy day and there were white caps past Wyre Island, both rounds were completed in medium, shifty conditions paired with lots of current.
Our umpires came back for more and were put to work! Thank you, Jack and Mimi, for helping us decide the races on the water.
