Sail-World.com : ICSA/GILL National Championship – Weather hampers racing

ICSA/GILL National Championship – Weather hampers racing

'Brown University junior skipper Fred Strammer (Nokomis, Fla.) and freshman crew Molly Bernstein (Washington, D.C.) helped move the Bears up to third overall with their performance in A-Division.'    Jan Harley

ICSA/Gill National Championship saw conditions all over the place on day two of the competition. There was a light breeze from the WNW when the first race got underway that climbed up to six knots, and then clocked around to north and then east before a severe thunderstorm warning – indicating the possibility of golf ball-sized hail and damaging winds – kept the fleet ashore for most of the afternoon.

Just before 7:00 p.m. CDT, B-Division headed out for race 8B in a north-easterly breeze of 13 knots and light rain. The waning daylight put an end to racing for the day with the scoreboard now reflecting 10 races for A-Division and nine for B-Division. There will be an early start tomorrow as the Notice of Race has been amended to move the competitor’s meeting up to 8:30 a.m., with the first warning signal given as soon as practicable thereafter.

Despite a rough end to their day with three double-digit finishes in A-Division, Boston College (Chestnut Hill, Mass.) retains the lead in the overall standings. With 88 A-Division points plus 39 from B-Division, the Eagles have 127 points and a five-point edge over Harvard University (Cambridge, Mass.) with 132 total points (74 + 58). Brown University (Providence, R.I.) started the day in fifth and moved up to third overall with 142 points (82 + 60). The Bears are tied on points with St. Mary’s College (St. Mary’s, Md.), who moved up three spots in the standings. Georgetown University (Washington, D.C.) keeps their top standing in A-Division after they offset double-digit finishes in races 7 and 8 with wins in races nine and 10. With 143 points (53 + 90), the Hoyas are fifth overall.

With the fifth-placed team only 16 points out from the series leader, there are no easy bets as to who will claim the title when racing for the 2010 ICSA/Gill National Championship wraps up tomorrow Thursday, June 3. The championship is being hosted by the University of Wisconsin, utilizing their fleet of 420s, from the regatta base at Memorial Union Terrace.
