The first day of the Emily Wick saw tricky and ever changing conditions. The first race of the day in A division was sailed in a beautiful 12 knots of breeze from the north, but only twenty minutes later A division’s second race and B division’s first race had to be abandoned due to the wind shifting 90 degrees to the left and then dying. This was a theme throughout the day, as the northerly and westerly breezes constantly fought each other, and occasionally died out entirely. The strong ebb current throughout the day further complicated matters. Naturally, this led to many starts and races needing to be abandoned. Towards the end of the day, the breeze switched entirely as the southerly filled in from Long Island Sound. Despite these tricky conditions, racing was close and competitive, and the race committee did a fantastic job getting off seven good races in each division. Thank you to Coach Emilie for running a great first day of the regatta, and to Fritz Baldauf and Winni Opel for running great races in the tricky conditions!
Day two of the Emily Wick saw an hour and a half postponement to start the day due to several different wind directions fighting each other. The wait was worth it, however, as a beautiful, ten to fifteen knot southerly filled in from Long Island Sound just before noon. The racing was the Thames River at its absolute best. Each division sailed 7 competitive, close races. In contrast to Saturday, the current and shifts were much less of a factor, and what ruled the day was boat speed and boat handling. Thank you to Coach Emilie and the Camel race committee for running an excellent event!

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.
