Late last week we learned the news that Newport sailing hero and champion Dr. Robin Wallace had passed away. A huge loss to the entire sailing community. We wanted to name these regattas in his honor. Please see this tribute video which was created for the Sail Newport gala in September 20, 2014: https://vimeo.com/104465371 You can also read more about Dr. Wallace in Scuttlebutt's article: https://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2021/03/21/eight-bells-robin-wallace/
Originally, we had plans to team race with CGA and URI, but due to Covid-related issues CGA had to bow out. Instead, URI packed up three teams/9 boats to battle with three teams/9 boats from RWU. After one round-robin we switched gears to fleet racing. See the results at the Robin Wallace Team Race.
Glorious spring conditions today: warm and sunny. After the team race round robin, we raced 5 races in 6-11 knots from the ESE. No protests were filed. One breakdown occurred and that team recieved average points.
Thanks to Colin Merrick on the mark set boat. Also thanks to URI for bringing their own coach boat.

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.
