After a slow start to the day’s racing that had everyone wondering whether we would get a race off today, the wind finally built from the West to about 10 knots and the races were off and running. We were able to finish three Etchells races and two San Juan 24 races before we had to stop in order for the racers to get home in time to take their host families to dinner.
The race committee boats were kept busy moving marks early on and then later, repairing broken items and ripped spinnakers in the Etchells fleet. Jack Thompson, from the Western Sailing Team, again proved a valuable asset to help diagnose and repair some of the issues.
We hope the winds tomorrow will fill in earlier as we have a few races to make up in order to ensure that each team gets to sail each of the boats.
Here is a recap of today’s results and the overall combined results for each team.
