The 2012 Kathryn Hammond Memorial Regatta got underway on Saturday, 20th October. The day was beautiful, fall, Austin weather, partly cloudy and in the 80s all day. The first race of the day started at 10:00 with light winds, but filled in after that. Breeze was between 8-12 knots, gusts were up to 20 knots. Typical of Lake Travis, the breeze was shifty and varying in velocity.

Eight race were completed in A and B division. There were several capsizes in the heavier gusts. Texas A&M Galveston's coed team leads, with the University of Texas women's team trailing by eight points. Thank you Ravi Subramanian for being PRO and Nataleigh Vann and Alex Cockerill for mark set.

Sunday morning started with remarks from Daniel Hammond, Kathryn Hammond's brother, speaking about the life his sister lived so fully and thanking the regatta attendees for keeping her memory alive. Two races were sailed in A and B divisions, which finished a full rotation. The breeze was out of the south again, 12-16 knots. Again there were a few capsizes in the heavier puffs. Congratulations to Texas A&M Galveston to winning the regatta. Thank you Ravi Subramanian for being PRO, Kent Phillips for assisting with starts, and Barrett Fontenot and Cait Taylor for mark set.
