A light 4-6 knot Northerly and a slacking ebb current greeted sailors at Kings Point this morning. The breeze progressively shifted right over the first hour of racing, before the breeze completely shut off. Eight races were completed.
We waited for a seabreeze to fill until 1730 when the decision was made to call it for the afternoon.
Following MAISA Procedural Rules, Report Time will be pushed forward to 0830 for Sunday.
Many thanks to the great umpire team, lead by Chief Umpre Tony Weiner, and comprised of Pedro Lorson, Henry Millette, James Gilmore, Chris DeMarco, Aidan Felice and Brendan Feeney.
Report time was pushed early to 0830, consistent with MAISA Procedural Rules for the Prosser with the goal of completing the first round robin before the noon deadline. This was easily done by 1140, with sailors racing in a steady NNEerly breeze and progressively slacking ebb tide. Pressure was consistent starting around 6-10 kts, and peaking at 10-16 kts between 1100 and 1300.
Competitors had a brief bathroom and lunch break ashore. During this time, two hearings were held, with umpires deciding no change in scoring in both cases. Sailors headed back on the water for a 1220 harbor start, with the goal of trying to complete the 2nd round robin before the 1600 cutoff.
Racing started at a good and optimistic pace, despite the strengthening adverse current. Unfortunately the wind quickly dropped off around 1500. With 11 races left to complete at 1520 and an impending course reset, the call was made to end racing for the day.
Congratulations to Georgetown for winning the 2023 Prosser Trophy, and receiving a berth for the Open Team Race Nationals this May.
Many thanks to the umpire team, lead by Tony Weiner, for volunteering their weekend to help keep racing as fair as possible.
