The day started slowly with no breeze and AP being hoisted following the skippers meeting. The sailors were able to get out on the water shortly before noon and six races were completed in a variety of conditions ranging from 3-7 knot winds, with oscillating shifts. The wind originally filled from the northeast, and slowly worked its way to south-southeast, keeping the RC and mark boat busy shifting the course between each race.
A major learning point for the sailors was dealing with current, which was flowing at right angles to the course early on, and then stopped and reversed to flowing at 30 degrees relative to the course axis. The last start was after 3pm and the sailors returned to the HSA pavilion shortly before 4pm to wrap up the day.
Thanks to all the volunteers that made the day a success. Thanks to the Halifax Sailing Association for supporting our event!

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.
