The Indian River gave us great conditions all day. Winds began around 10 knts and big variable puffs were had all day. The wind continued to build and puffs were getting bigger during the middle portion of the regatta. Peak wind of the day proved challenging for some with a few capsizes between and during races. We started with a course almost due South that continued to clock West until perpendicular to the shore when the wind started to taper out for the day. Many course changes happened throughout the day as a result of the shifting conditions and even corrected during races to keep the sailing fair. We got eight of our planned nine races per division thanks to a great race committee, mark boat, and land crews making rotations fast. Overall the racing was dominated by the two Jax teams and UCF who shared overlaps at many finishes. Every team had their moments but the same top 5 teams were always battling out at the front. No protests or breakdowns were filed. No general recalls all day and only a few individual recalls. Racing was clean with penalties being delt with on the water. Thank you to all the visiting teams for coming to the first Indian River Invitational.

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.
