We had a light 4-6 knots NE breeze with a strong flood tide this morning for the first A Division set. The breeze maintained for the first B Division set and the current became more slack on The Wando River. The second A Division set got 2 planned races in, but at the end of the second A Division set's last race (5A), the breeze completely died leaving several teams struggling to finish. We sat in postponement from about 12:45 PM until about 2 PM. B Division went out for their second set as a nice NE filled back in from an isolated weather system. B Division got about halfway through their first race of the second set when the current decided to really show itself and the breeze got too light to keep up and created the hamster wheel affect on every boat sailing upwind. After giving the race about a 20 min try, RC decided to abandon and end racing for the day.
Congrats to CofC on winning the event, NC State finishing 2nd & to Clemson on rounding out the podium in 3rd overall. Also, congrats to Wake Forest on qualifying for the upcoming SAISA Open Conference Champs (Richard L. Tillman Trophy) through the wildcard berth of The SAISA North Tournament.
Thank you to Stefan Kuehn & Daniel Island Yacht Club for letting us use their facilities to host this event. Also, thank you to CofC for lending three Z420s to help accommodate the fleet size.
