McMillan Cup - Fleet in action during the 2010 competition Jahn S. Tihansky
This weekend, nine teams are on hand to contest the 2013 McMillan Cup at Navy.The wind for the day came in strong from the SSW staring at 16 knots and building to the low 20s by early afternoon then diminishing slightly for the later races.

PRO Ken Jacobs and his crack RC team ran four races today on windward/leeward 4 leg courses.

NY Maritime came out of the blocks hot winning the first race handily but suffered a jib clew blowout early in race two for which they requested and received redress of average points of the day. They won race race as well but suffered a DSQ in race four after finishing second which hammered their average. As a result, Coast Guard emerged as the leader for the day just one point up on Mass Maritime and three up on Navy. NY Maritime is six points off the lead.

Three races are planned for tomorrow with a bit less breeze in the forecast.

Saturday Results:

1. Coast Guard 2,1,6,1 10
2. Mass Maritime 3,2,3,3 11
3. Navy 6,3,2,2, 13
4. NY Maritime 1,4,1,10 16
5. Maine Maritime 5,4,4,8 21
6. Kings Point 9,5,5,5, 24
7. Cornell 7,7,7,4 25
8. Army 6,6,9,7 28
