On the first day of the ISSA National Keelboat Invitational RC patience certainly paid off. One light air race was sailed early in the day and followed by a long postponement on shore. Just before three o'clock sailors were taken back out 4 races and hit the dock just before sunset. Lots of close racing racing with Corona Del Mar holding the lead after day 1.
With a substantial cold front passing through the area in the early morning hours, sailors were kept ashore to wait out the threat of lighting and low visibility. At 1100 the RC took the sailor out just as the worst of the front passed. 5 more races were sailed to complete the 10 race series. Ranney sailed a solid second day closing the gap on Corona Del Mar. Corona Del Mar won the last race to seal the championship for the 2nd time in three years.
Thanks to the St Pete YC for once again hosting a great event and for providing such an evenly matched fleet of J70's.

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.
