Mendums Invite


Sunday, April 23:

Wow, what a day for the Mendums Invite. We began the day with temps in the very low 40s, cold water (just ask the two boats who capsized), and traditional Mendums shifty, with fluctuating velocity, breeze. The course was reset 4 times before the first race was able to be sailed. Eight races were finally sailed in this mess with some tight finishes. The breeze had many left-hand shifts, and complacent sailors learned quickly that righties came in with a vengeance. Races were run with the I flag up after the second race keeping the aggressive starts under control.

Thanks to the coaches who were a great help moving marks, and a special shout out to UNH new sailor Jackson Scheele who braved the weather to help score and manage flags. Thanks also to the cadre of UNH sailors on land who inputed scores, managed boats and the dock.

UNH Wildcats 1 A and BU B teams each won Reece’s for their stellar bullets. Congratulations to the Wildcats 1 team of Grace/Marty and Sam/Sean for winning the spring Mendums Invite.

Dartmouth was a no show.
