Saturday morning was breezy and sunny. The fleet sailed out and a course was set but a baton shook out of one of the boats main sails and race committee decided to postpone on land due to high wind. The wind increased all day and by 2:30PM race committee called off racing for the day. A very nice reception with pasta and drinks was held at 5:00PM.
As no racing got off on Saturday the time for the first race on Saturday was pushed up to 8:23 with mixed reactions from the competitors. The breeze started off in the low to mid-teens Sunday morning and stayed consistent until about 10:30AM. Two flights were sailed with spinnakers until the V flag was flown signaling that spinnakers were no longer allowed. The breeze began to build in the late morning but the fleet managed to sail a full round robin before the race committee decided there was too much wind to continue.
Overall, Red Star got 2 wins and ended 5th out of 8 for the event. We would like to thank the St. Francis Yacht club for hosting the event and all the festivities. We would like to thank the race committee and umpires for giving their time, organizing the event, and making everything run smoothly. Finally, we want to thank Dick and C.B. Watts for housing and entertaining us throughout the weekend.
