Seven teams competed in the SAISA Open regatta at Lake Crabtree on Nov. 12, 2016. Twelve races were completed in winds 6-12 knots with extremely tight racing on the windward leeward course all day. Excellent sportsmanship was displayed with teams doing their circles on the water to resolve any rule violations. Per the expected forecast, the wind started at 9-12 knots out of the NE to get the regatta off to a smooth start. During the first B rotation, the wind shifted hard left from NW resulting in abandonment during the first beat to reset the course. For the remainder of the day the winds varied from NW to N with velocities from 6-10. The better teams were able to take advantage of the puffs and wind shifts to move toward the top of the fleet.
Beaufort led early and then Wakefield and Pamlico rose into a tight battle for first and second after 8 races. Wakefield had a 1 and 2 in the last two A races to open up a lead and then held even with Pamlico in the last two B races to finish first overall. Carborro made a late surge and finished in third overall with Beaufort in fourth. Congrats the top 4 teams and to Durham School of the Arts who finished second in B and Lake Norman who finished third in B.
