AP is up... Postponed for lack of wind

Finals Underway

Checking in with many of the racers this morning...

Races are now underway. Race 1 of the finals was completed in less than perfect wind. Back on the beach now for a boat change and lunch. We are hoping for an increase about the time we also get a tide change to make it sail able, but we are not expecting a lot this afternoon. The sun is out and the gear is coming off, so the beach team is happy!

Finals Day One!!

Well, the finals start today!

The wind is in, a bit light, however it looks like a great day for's hoping for a great series.

Race 6 Wrap ... On To The Cut Party!

We finished the Semi-Finals! The day started out looking pretty grim, but the wind came through. With two sets of 3 in this round robin format, it gives each sailor 4 races. Two days of racing to go and a weather report that is calling for sun. Off to the cut party to see who makes it into the final 56! Tomorrow it is 56 boats on the water and likely back to back races with a boat change at the lunch break only.

Top 10 as of this afternoon

5 is Done.. 6 is On The Water

We had winds of about 15 kts for race 5. The day has shaped up a bit, all but the rain...still sprinkling a bit. We are hoping for better weather tomorrow, but hey... we are racing, so this is good. Race 5 is off. Jason Waterhouse over-early. Hope he knows!
