Saturday, November 12:
Teams arrived promptly at 9am for the skippers meeting, Coach Cappy Capper and RC Jack & Linda Knoblauch led the mornings meeting; informing sailors of temperatures in the 50's, winds from the south-west at 7-10knts, water temperatures in the high 50s. Winds were shifty, and slowly clocked to the west throughout the day. Sailors rotated off the front lawn of Macatawa Bay Yacht Club; efficiently and quickly. During the first few races sailors became accustomed to a race committee who was serious about over early boats, resulting in 3 OCS starts, and a general recall in the first race of the day. During the day a few abnormalities occurred; including a slipping anchor issue with the RC boat resulting in finishes recorded by substitute RC boat. Races concluded with a last B fleet rotation (6B) around 3:30pm. Later in the evening teams attended a banquet, including a speaker, to finish this days events.
Sunday, November 13:
Sundays racing consisted of windier conditions, a westerly persisted throughout the day, steady between 13 and 20 knots of wind. The windier sailing provided for fast conditions, and more protests than the previous day. Temperatures were in the mid to upper 50s, and the sun never wavered. Rotations continued off the front docks of the Macatawa Bay Yacht Club. Protests resulted in two DSQ's for the day. Recovery the Race Committee boat continued to have problems with its anchor, which resulted in substitute boat acting as RC for a few starts until the situation was rectified. We completed 2 full rotations on this day of racing, solidifying scores. Congratulations to Northwestern, Michigan, and Wisconsin for placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd overall in this regatta!
