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.
