Snow on the ground, yet spring time was in the air. Spring Mixer time that is! Seven SAISA teams gathered at Lake Crabtree on a crisp February Saturday morning for some exciting sailboat racing. The breeze was light but only a brief wind delay was experienced while the RC delivered a full day of quality races. Early in the day, the home-team NC State Wolfpack and the visiting Clemson Tigers found the top of the leaderboard during the first rotation, but the also-home-team Duke's B-division skipper and crews dominated their fleet and brought the Blue Devils into a fierce battle for the podium with Clemson from the start of the second rotation until the very last race. Elsewhere in the fleet, the UNC Tarheels traded barbs with NC State for the final podium spot, a spot won by the Wolfpack on a tie breaker from the final race. Georgia, Georgia Tech, and East Carolina were competitive throughout the day and found high points in several races. By the end of the afternoon, it was sunny and warm, while hospitality and all-around Corinthian competitive spirit made the day complete at the 2020 SAISA Spring Mixer.
