Lynne Marchiando Team Race Regatta

Summary

Saturday, March 31:

The Lynne Marchiando Trophy honors an MIT Sailor who enjoyed racing on the team and being an officer of NEISA while enrolled as a student here. Originally the event was a women's team race and migrated to a coed event in recent years. It is a fitting tribute to Lynne that so many top teams wish to race in this event annually.

Competitors worked their way through Flight 17 with 102 races today. Racing was very tight with very few play ones on the race course. Many thanks to Tony Weiner as our PRO with help from Hugh Dougherty, Carl Zimba, Dave Alfonso, and Alex Bost. Franny and Lucy Charles were tweaking buoys as an unstable northerly reluctantly gave it up to a westerly at 8-12 knots today. Sam Madden was our chief umpire with a full umpire team which we will recognize in tomorrow's summary.

Boston College stands on top of the standings with Yale, Stanford, and Harvard close behind them. The quality of competition is remarkable with many conference championships coming up next weekend.

The plan is to complete Round Robin 1 with 120 races and then split into gold and silver fleets with gold in 24 FJs and silver in 24 Fireflies.

Sunday, April 1:

West to Northwest breeze at 12-30 knots made for some very challenging competition for all sailors. After 120 races the competitors were split into top 6 and bottom 10 with gold sailing in FJs and silver sailing in Fireflies. Unfortunately the silver fleet didn't quite get to 80% of the races in their round so that round will not count. Tech score has a bug in its program so we can not accurately reflect the bottom 10 scores at this point. Hopefully this will be corrected by mid-week.

In the gold fleet one complete final round was sailed and another round had more than 80% of the races completed. Their scores all count and the top 6 finish results are accurate in tech score.

Boston College had an impressive victory against the best of the best in one of the toughest team race regattas of the season. Yale fought hard to beat out Harvard and Bowdoin who were tied right behind them.

Tony Weiner did an exemplary job of running 180 races this weekend and Liz Obermeier from MIT was key in accurately keeping the scores updated and tracked properly as boats were substituted and the races just kept coming at the finish boat. Sam Madden's umpire group were on top of all the races and no protests came off the water during the entire weekend. All competitors had a grueling weekend of stellar competition and are well prepared for conference championships which begin next weekend.
