This year's Sea Otter Regatta was one for the books- record books! Race Committee ventured out Saturday morning to a very light Northerly and a 650-foot cruise ship on the race course. As the breeze filled we set marks only to see a traditional NW fill in. But- that was not to last as we chased the wind until a solid southerly filled in. Racing started in 5-8 kts of breeze but when the southerly came in it did so with a vengeance and sustained winds of 11-15 with gusts to 19.6 kts. At one point we had five boats capsized at once! It's a tribute to the sailors and the training of their coaches that all were able to right their FJ's and race! After completing 20 races we docked about 6:20 pm.
Sunday brought much more traditional conditions and sailors completed 12 races in 6-12 kts of breeze from the WNW. On both days we saw great starts in both Gold and Silver fleets, along with plenty of penalty turns when fouls occurred.(picture 2 shows Gold fleet on the line just after the starting signal). RC salutes the sailors for embracing Rule 2! All sailors were also most respectful as they sailed by RC after finishing to thank the race committee. See all next year!

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.
