Racing commenced at 0936 with breeze at about 3-5 knots. Race committee pushed to get races set and started as soon as possible as the wind was expected to die. Wind died at the end of the second race of the day causing a long delay between races.
Just as race committee was making the decision to tow boats to shore and postpone racing, a breeze convinced them to delay in case it stuck. With winds holding at 4, PRO Nathan Adams made the call to stick with it and start racing. The decision paid off and the breeze, although light, stayed constant enough to allow Gold and Silver fleets to sail a total of 7 races each, changing boats every two races.
Winds finally diminished to 1 knot prompting an end to racing at 1540. Overall a beautiful day on the water with excellent sailing by all competitors. First time participants Novi High School won 1st place in Gold Fleet earning them a full sweep of the Great Oaks Perpetual Trophy, the Allstate Sugar Bowl Perpetual Trophy, and the Babs and Larry White Perpetual Trophy Award for the Outstanding Performance for a First Time Team.
