Two round robins were completed on a long day one of the 2019 GW Team Race despite a slow start this morning. The wind was minimal, but high water levels allowed for racing to be held in the lagoon to hide from the stronger current in the Potomac River.
However the shifty breeze in the lagoon was a challenge frequently shifting from NW to W in the morning races making for a few slow flights during the first round robin as well as some race cancelations. Eventually the wind mostly settled NW allowing us to finish the first round robin before a lunch break. After lunch the wind continued to make race management a challenge, but the second round robin went quickly in a N-NW.
Georgetown University wins the day with an undefeated record.
Teams rotated back into Z420s for the third and final round robin of the GW Team Race in Washington Sailing Marina's infamous 'Lagoon' with a light NE-E breeze. Despite very shifty conditions and many course adjustments, the race committee and umpires did a great job keeping the race course fair. One re-sail was conducted due to equipment failure.
Thank you to our Chief Umpire, Rob Overton, and his team of umpires: Sean Golden, AJ Reiter, Meaghan Macrae, Albert Kraus, Roger Dorr and Kai Friesecke. It's great to see young college sailing alumni give back to college sailing. Thank you to the team of GW Sailors who ran the start boat, finish boat and for on land support. Thank you to the Georgetown University Sailing Team, in particular coach Mike Callahan, for helping run the event.
Congratulations to Georgetown University for winning the 2019 GW Team Race with an undefeated record.
