Rolex International Women’s Keelboat Championship–Team Maclaren update

by Anna Tunnicliffe on 31 Aug 2011
Team Maclaren - Rolex International Women’s Keelboat Championship 2011 Rochester YC
US Sailing’s Rolex International Women’s Keelboat Championship, being hosted by Rochester Yacht Club, is currently underway. Team Maclaren reports on the first day of racing.

Anna Tunnicliffe:


We completed five races today and finished with a score line of 1, 10, 2, 8, and 7 to leave us in fourth overall.
We headed out to the race course around 8:45am and started on time at 10am. The conditions this morning were 10-12kts and semi steady breeze relative to how the day ended. By the last race, the wind had swung 55 degrees to the right with both big left and right shifts and the wind dropped to 5-7kts.

The racing was tight all around the course. It took us a race or two to fully get back into fleet racing mode, but eventually we grasped the one hour, long course racing.

It has been a long day doing five long races, so we are very tired and have an early push off the dock tomorrow morning. You can check the scores online.

Sail Hard,
Anna
