Conditions: AM heats had slight to heavier rain, intermittent throughout the day, cloudy, slight wind WNW variable 0-10mph. Water conditions were very good in the morning. Overall, great racing conditions.
PM finals were raced in very challenging conditions. High winds NNW, cross-headwind from lane 1 to lane 6, variable 15-25 mph, gusting upwards of 30-40mph. Tough for all crews and lanes.
Novice flights were cancelled due to the weather. Finals were raced 5-3V grands, then 2-1V petite/grands. Afternoon racing began at 1:50.
Salisbury won the boys team trophy. CBC and Greenwich Boat Club tied for the girls team trophy. CBC won the tie with a 1st place finish in the girls 1V grand final. Congratulations to CBC and Salisbury for winning the team points trophies.
Congratulations to all crews for taking on the difficult conditions, and thanks to all teams for attending. We look forward to next year's regatta!
