Fog and no wind greeted sailors upon arrival but that quickly changed. Wind and rain filled in by 10:30 and both increased. Wind for 1 & 2 A was NW at 5-15. For 1 & 2 B it was 10-20 and raining moderately hard. Boats started capsizing. For 3 A puffs increased to 25 and too many were capsizing and the regatta was ended. With only three A races and 2 B races, the regatta does not count.
To reduce carnage, an old fashioned Gold Cup course was used with two long and fast reach legs.
While some boats were capsizing, other boats were blasting around at high speed including sailors from Brown, Tufts, Salve Regina, URI, Northeastern, and even Roger Williams Women's team.
With a forecast of temps below freezing and winds above 20 knots, racing for Sunday was already counted out before racing even began Saturday.
Thanks for Maddie Simms for scoring and to a number of Tufts freshmen for rigging and providing some rescue boat support.
PRO, Ken Legler

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.
