Eight NW teams were selected to compete in seven J80s out of Shilshole Marina for the 2019 NWISA Keelboat Qualifier.
After an hour plus training session with boat owners, followed by a short postponement racing begun at 1150 in building breeze from the NW. Six races were completed through the afternoon with racing being called off at 1645 due to unsafe conditions for on the water rotations (wind having built to 20 gusting 25mph).
After racing four redress hearings were heard, with three boats being awarded redress. Two resulting in an average score being granted and one changing the finish time of a boat in race 2.
Big thanks to regatta chair Shauna Walgren, PRO Geoff Pease, and to the parents who helped out on RC. Also we couldn't have approached doing this regatta without the support of the Seattle Sailing Club and the J80 owners. Thank you so much for sharing your boats with high school sailors and making this event a reality!
Congrats to Gig Harbor for winning a hard fought regatta and earning the distinction of representing NWISA at the ISSA Keelboat Invitational.
