The Atlantic Coast Championship, hosted by Severn Sailing Association, had 18 teams from 5 different districts competing. The day started off Saturday with a 12-15 knot Westerly breeze that made for great spectating, but quickly died after the first 4 races of the day. SSA decided to do an on land postponement as we thought with an early dying westerly, that would make way for a Southerly for the rest of the day. We got more of a Southwest breeze for the next 2 races, before the breeze died again. It then took about 30-45 minutes for the Southeast breeze to finally fill in. Once that breeze filled in, we were able to get 3 more races in before the sun set, and the breeze died for the last time. A big thank you goes out to our RC group, Ian Burman (PRO), Katherine Martin, Thaddeus Bell, Carolyn Marquez, Jay Marquez, Michael Udell and James Golden. Our Jury consisted of Andrew Cole, Brady Stagg, and Bradley Adam.
Day 2 of the Atlantic Coast Championship turned into a big breeze kind of day. We started the day with a West Northwest breeze at about 15-18 knots with gusts up to 24 knots. The puffs were very shifty and it made for very hard racing. We ran into a few breakdowns with the big breeze that ended up settling down after the first two sets of racing. Mostly some halyards snapping and a couple odd breaks like shackles and mainsheets. The race committee did a great job getting boats in for breakdowns and getting the sailors swapped into the correct boats. We were able to end the day with a 1 and 1 after we had a capsized boat get stuck upside down for a good 30 minutes. None of the sailors were hurt and we were able to get the boat upright and sailing for the last race of the day. We wanted to congratulate the top 3 schools who put together a great two days of racing in shifty and big breeze. In first place, by a wide margin, was Severn School followed by Ransom Everglades and St. Georges. Well done to all the schools who competed and thank you for making this championship so awesome.
Lastly, we wanted to thank our Sunday race committee. Ian Burman/Dillon Paiva (PRO), Jessica Oswalt, Preston Anderson, Arjan van Andel, Brooke Bogdan, Tommy McGeady, and Jay Herman. Our Jury consisted of Jim Urban, Andrew Cole and Brady Stagg for the second day of racing. We appreciate you all volunteering for this event.
