Saturday was a wild day at the Jumbo Dome. Chilly temperatures with shifty and puffy conditions made for some exciting racing. Breeze ranged from 10-18 knots, shifting from W to NNW and back again all day. All teams sailed in a combined division fleet, with 16 boats on the line, and three-race rotations. Three long races, consisting of a triangle and two windward-leewards were sailed in the morning, with the third race resulting in three capsizes and two DNF's. The wind became more consistent during the lunch break, and three long races were sailed during the afternoon. The fleet did a great job of managing themselves on the water by completing their penalty turns, resulting in zero protests filed and no breakdowns.
Sunday was a beautiful sunny day with slightly higher temps and a little less breeze. The wind shifted from the NW to N and back, ranging from 5-15 knots and super puffy conditions. All courses were W6 with an offset mark and leeward gate. Racing was exciting in the shifty breeze, and no matter how big the lead, the outcome of each race was never certain. Three races were sailed to complete the rotation, and sailors got off the water in time to enjoy a lovely Sunday afternoon. No protests were filed, and there were no breakdowns.
Thank you to all teams that came to compete in the Icebreaker Fleet Race. A special thanks goes out to the Jumbos for their teamwork in getting the boats off the racks and rigged each day, and to Evan Robison '21 for his role as safety boat on Saturday and shore crew on Sunday. It was a great regatta, and the Jumbos were happy to host!
