On the second day of sailing, the Silver fleet saw 3-6 from the North East with beautiful blue skies and temperatures in the low 70s. The wind began at 65 degrees and ended at 15 degrees. It was a beautiful fall day except for fairly light winds. The 14 sailing teams who qualified for Silver fleet sailed 6 races. The top 3 teams in Silver fleet were Marblehead High School of Marblehead, Massachusetts, St. Stanislaus High School of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, and Bethesda - Chevy Chase High School of Maryland.
The Tulane sailing team, under the direction of coach Charles Higgins, volunteered to rig and launch the boats both days of the regatta. This luxury helped the race committee get on the water as fast as possible so they could get as many races as possible to take advantage of what wind there was.
Sailors came off of the water to enjoy a hot brownie Sunday bar after sailing.
Thank you to the Allstate Sugar Bowl committee for their generous donation that made the regatta possible. We also appreciate the New Orleans Community Sailing Center and Tulane University's sailing team for chartering the boats to the regatta and for their assistance making the regatta a success. The Southern Yacht Club staff did a wonderful job of accommodating the attendees and already have ideas for improvements for next year. And we especially thank all of the teams who traveled so far to attend the regatta.
