This will be the rules & policies.
Today’s racing began with the final races for the First Round Women’s teams, who were competing to make it in the top nine to move on to race in the Final Round of the Sperry Top-Sider / ICSA Women’s National Championships. The conditions this morning were more pleasant than yesterday with lighter winds ranging between 14-17 mph and more sun shine with temperatures in the low to mid 60s. It was a westerly breeze and although the wind was more manageable, it made the current more challenging, the women had to work harder to fight its strength on the downwind legs. The women sailed Windward/Leeward four or five courses and were able to complete the event with both A-division and B-division finishing two races making the required event total of eight races.
The first day of racing for the First Round Women’s teams competing to make it into the Final Round for the Sperry Top-Sider/ICSA Women’s National Championships taking place in Cascade Locks, Oregon. Leading the fleet are Yale University, Brown University and the University of Rhode Island. Read further for a re-cap of the day.
