Delaware Spring Open


Saturday, April 20:

First race began at 10:00am. Good sailing conditions were seen with 13-15 mph winds sustained with gusts up to 18 mph. Around 2:00pm winds started to pick up to 18 mph sustained with gusts up to 22 mph. During this time many B fleet boats began capsizing, with many requiring assistance in order to get their masts stuck out of the mud. No A fleet boats flipped. With gusts up 27 mph, many B fleet boats continued to flip, leaving tired sailors in cold water for longer than ideal amounts of time. The decision was made to have a 20 minute delay beginning at 2:50pm, in order to allow the fleet to regroup before continuing. A fleet was sent out at 3:20pm, races 5A and 6A were completed, and the day was concluded. Race committee was run by Delaware's Sophia Caracuzzo, scores were recorded by Brady Price, and all land activity was coordinated by Tanner Mathias.

Sunday, April 21:

The morning's first race began at 10:20pm, beginning with race 5B. Beautiful sailing conditions were had with 8-10 mph winds sustained the entire day.

Teams rotated around and through the empty boat accordingly throughout the day. During the last rotation of the day A and B divisions sailed one race each, 11A and 11B. After this, the weekend was brought to a close.
