2014 NAC Day 4

The wind gods were confused today and we started with a northwest 6-8 knot wind, but by the windward mark for the Challenger Division, it was clear that the wind had headed just too far east, so the race was abandoned.  Some people were happy, some not so much - depending of course on where they were in their division.  After settling down to east-northeast, race one was run in 8 knot winds, and the wind continued to move east, but not enough to have to stop the races again.  For the second race, the Race Committee moved further west and ran the second race with the wind staying steadier east this time possibly a little stronger but not much more than 9 or 10 at any point.  Heading back into the Club was a nice relaxing spinnaker run.  Up next is the Annual Meeting tonight, a nice gathering of the competitors and with some FSSA awards being given out.

The leaders in the Championship Division after 4 races are Jeff Linton, John Kreidler and Chris Morgan.  In the Challenger Division, they are Greg Kampf, Joe Thorpe and Frank Gerry.  Full results to date are here.
