Sometimes the weather cooperates and you can get some quality racing in. Today, everything was stacked against us. This morning the air temperature was 33F, and we had a steady NE breeze ranging 18-23 knots, with gusts over 27 knots. At 10AM we went into postponement, hoping the weather would improve. While in postponement, race officials went out on the water to observe wind and wave conditions. At noon, the regatta officials and the PRO evaluated the conditions and decided that they were unsafe for sailing and not forecasted to improve. On the bright side, Aaron Rodgers (THE Baaaaad Man) would have destroyed the Bears in the frozen tundra today. The warning signal for tomorrow's racing has been moved forward to 9:30AM. We are hoping for steady breeze and safe conditions tomorrow.
Overnight we received a quarter inch of ice on the sidewalks, piers, ramps, and boats. Given the high for the day is 32F and high winds, we made the call early in the day that the conditions would not improve enough to get on the water today. Sailors then set course for home prior to significant snowfall. Unfortunately the weather this weekend did not cooperate and no sailing took place, but we would like to thank all the teams and race officials who traveled to Madison for their patience. We look forward to hosting the MCSA team race qualifier next weekend.
