Mendelblatt Open SAISA Team Race


Saturday, March 4:

Shifty winds greeted the 10 team competing at the Mendelblatt Team Race event hosted by the University of South Florida. One full round-robin (45 races) were completed, with College of Charleston leading at the end of the day, dominating the field.

Sunday, March 5:

The forecast was for much lighter winds, so it was decided to sail a Final 6 round to determine the 4 teams that would advance to the Bob Bavier team race in Charleston next weekend. After a postponement, the wind finally filled and the final 6 round was sailed. Congratulations to College of Charleston, Miami, USF, and Florida State (winning the tie-breaker over NC State) for advancing to the Bob next weekend, with the other teams scheduled to race at Citadel.
