9 Teams ventured over to Martha's Vineyard on the 8:15am Steamship Authority ferry and were greeted with bright sunshine, warm temps and very little wind. The lack of wind was short-lived as a decent northeasterly filled in around 11am, and while challenging, it forced the better teams to the top with consistent starts and solid upwind legs. By 3:30, A and B divisions had sailed 7 races each as the wind backed to the east and east-southeast. In the spirit of the Arnold Brown trophy there were only two protests (unfortunately they were both for infringements from the host team) ): and everyone seemed to have a good time (:
Much thanks to all the teams who traveled to the island and also a huge thanks to the MV parents who provided tons of food and water throughout the day. Congratulations to Belmont Hill for winning the 2016 Arnold Brown.

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
