It was a chilly morning with temperatures in the mid-30's, under partly cloud skies, when ten NJ high school sailing teams arrived at Toms River Yacht Club for the NJISA 2015 Spring Fleet Championship.
Temperatures did not get above the low 40°'s, even when the sun came out, and the sailors were met with brisk, shifty and gusty NNW to NW breezes averaging in the 10-18mph range throughout the day. The mark boat was kept busy resetting the course due to oscillations of up to 45°, which also presented challenging conditions for the sailors. Ten races were completed in each division, for total of twenty races for the day. All races were completed today so no there will be no racing Sunday.
Congratulations to the CBA Colts, coming out on top of the fleet with 61 points. Second place went to the Southern Rams with 70 points and 3rd to the Toms River North Mariners with 84 points.
The top teams from this regatta will advance onto the MASSA District Mallory Qualifier and the MASSA District Silver Championship in two weeks.
Senior US Sailing Judge Harry Foote was on call, but the only protest filed was withdrawn. Thanks AGAIN to Dave Magno for bundling up his his ski gear and PDF attire, who along with Robby Gearon, kept the course as square as possible all day. Thanks also to Mike Neubelt for enduring the wind and cold standing on the RC boat all day helping with line sighting and scoring.
As usual, thanks to OCC and Toms River Yacht Club for the sue of their fleet of boats and facilities.
