Saturday began with a short delay due to lack of wind with a 5-8 knot Southerly filling around noon and racing starting shortly afterwards. Once racing began 8 teams competed in classic Thames river conditions with shifty breezes and 2 knots of upwind current. Roger Williams dominated the day with no race lower than 3rd place, with tight competition seen for 2nd place between the Brown Bears, Maine Maritime Mariners, the Coast Guard Bears and the Vermont Catamounts. Six races were completed with the day ended slightly early due to extremely foggy conditions.
Sunday began with a light Southeasterly breeze with minimal upwind current. The fleet was again closely matched throughout the day with the exception of the RWU Hawks stellar performance with no race lower than 4th place. Seven races were completed today with breeze trending towards the Southwest and then to the tricky West wind which included some planing conditions for the J70s. The battle for 2nd and 3rd place came down to the final race with the Brown Bears just fighting off Maine Maritime and CGA Bears who tied for third with the Mariners coming out on top. Congrats to all competitors, thanks for racing!
