2013 27th Annual Saratoga Invitational - Day 1

Saturday 8/10 -The sky was beautiful and there were brisk winds 14 - 20+ from the Southwest that gave us a real challenge on the racecourse today. 19 boats ventured out and we all managed to stay upright, although a few boats ALOMST went over. Over the course of the 4 races, the wind continued to build, but we stayed out and kept racing. There were a few people after the races saying "I have to call Harry", but mostly boats stayed intact even in the heavy air. Results to date are here

2013 New England Districts - Day 1

The winds were howling in Harwichport on 8/3, with 25 MPH out of the SW, gusting even higher and flags were pointing practically straight up! The Race Committee headed out and a few boats went out past the breakwater. With several boats, even some with 3-up, nearly capsizing, deciding to come back in, we waited a bit before making a decision about going out. Within 15 minutes, the Race Committee came back in with a postpone flag. Less than 1/2 hour later races were cancelled for the day. The regatta will be sailed on Sunday 8/4.
