Saisa Women's Fall Championship - A tricky day

by Greg Fisher on 7 Oct 2013
Saisa Women’s Fall Championship College Sailing ICSA
Racing started at 10:45 in a light north easterly and the breeze slowly veered to the southeast for the first three races.

It was tricky sailing for the competitors since the typical Charleston current was charging as well. Eventually the breeze settled in with a nice 8-12 mph seabreeze and a slack tide.

The remaining nine races were sailed and finished by 3:30pm with only one breakdown. The Charleston Cougars sailed well for their 1,2 overall finish (Clerc Cooper and Beka Schiff)with Dominique Wright from USF in third.

Thanks to the Cougar team for their help in running a great and smooth event! Thanks too to Ned Goss our illustrious dockmaster in making sure our boats and facilities were all set to go! Tomorrow (Sunday) we start the dinghy fleet championship and we look forward to another great day.
