We had a great day today with drastically different conditions from yesterday - the sailors were happy to enjoy sunny skies and warmer weather. Today the highest wind speeds were about 10 knots, gusting to 12 at around 1 pm. The wind was shifty with large oscillations in the gusts. The nominal wind direction shifted right throughout the day, but competing wind direction provided periods of gusts from the left. The wind slowly died as the day went on, and we were forced to take a short postponement after attempting the 7th race multiple times. Luckily, the conditions became sailable again, and we were able to get in a final set.
We had a beautiful day today to finish off the fleet race portion of the regatta. We were able to enjoy sunny skies and flat water. The breeze came out of the southeast and there were big oscillations in wind direction trending to large righties and occasional lefties. The sailors bore puffy conditions with lows of 8 knots and gusts of up to 20 knots. The breeze increased throughout the day, as did the waves. Overall beautiful sailing, and we are so grateful to our PRO Scott Corder and scorekeeper Lisa Corder, our Judges Bruce Martinson and John Porter.
