Saisa Women's Fall Championship - Sunny but Windless!
Mon, 7 Oct 2013
Sunday greeted the SAISA women racers with a very sunny, warm but windless morning. The fleet hesitated for about an hour and a half for a light sea breeze to materialize...which finally occurred and the first race started at 10:50.
Six sets were sailed in some nice, relatively steady 5-8mph southeast breeze with the typical ripping ebbing tide. Still the racing was good and rolling well until a storm developed and threatened the harbor.
Racing was postponed and the fleet brought back to the marina. Once the threat passed the fleet gathered for two more races, for a total of eight sets, in the Copper River right in front of the Yorktown. The racing was close but congrats go to the Eckerd Tritons for the win followed by Charleston and USF. There were no breakdowns or protests. Thanks to the Cougars for working hard to run a smooth fine event.
