Racing began in a 4-6 knot southerly off of Lambert's Point at Old Dominion University. As tide rose, the course moved closer to shore to expedite rotation and improve coach and spectator viewing. Breeze built and solidified in the south throughout the afternoon with the last two races being sailed in 6-10 knots. No breakdowns or delays.
Report time stays the same tomorrow. Fleets will switch boats.
The day opened with 10-14 from the south. As the day progressed, the wind swung right and died, eventually ending in a light northwesterly. FJs delayed on water and the z420 fleet headed into land to wait out the wind delay. After about 45 minutes a northeasterly seabreeze filled in at 8-10 knots and racing continued. In total, 12 races in each division were completed by 5pm.
Two protests were filed, one was withdrawn and the other resulted in Navy DSQ from race 12A.
Thank you to our Judges, Doc Sullivan, John Pratt, Rob Overton, Ray Groble, Jerry Thompson and Andrea Luna.
PRO Cara Vavolotis did an excellent job getting racing off in challenging conditions. Big thanks to the Monarch sailors who assisted with race management and land based ops.
Congratulations to the Top 9! First warning at 1000 tomorrow morning for the finals.

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.
