Beautiful weather in Kings Point, NY today at the Yocum Sailing Center. The forecast called for a wide range of conditions with multiple direction changes. The Southerly winds died out much earlier allowing a Northerly to fill as competitors showed up. Racing started just before 10:00 in a somewhat stable northerly. By about race 3B the conditions started to change and the Northerly started getting much lighter and shifting East. After race 6B we had a lunch break and when we resumed racing the wind built in strength and became less shifty until race 10. The Easterly finally showed up at the start of 11A/finish of 10B. We finished the day with 10 races in total. Lots of individual recalls and a few generals. Only 2 easily fixable breakdowns. 1 protest was withdrawn and a redress was not granted. Courses were all W4's.
Thank you to Bowdoin and US Coast Guard Academy coaches for helping hear the redress. Report time is 0900 tomorrow. Thank you to USMMA Midshipmen for helping run the event!
Great day 2 at the Owen/Mosbacher/Knapp Trophy! We had the predicted Easterly breeze ranging from 10-30 knots with large waves on the leeward end of the course and super shifty conditions at the top of the course. Courses were again W-4's with a gate and offset. Racing started just before 10:00am and and ended at 1:00pm. We sailed 2 races and came in for a short rotation before sailing the final 3-race set of the regatta. We had two breakdowns due to jib tack pins breaking. There were no protests filed.
Thanks to the KP Midshipmen for setting the courses and assisting with breakdowns and capsizes.
Congrats to Yale for winning the event!

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.
