MASSA Fall Silver Fleet Championship


Saturday, October 28:

On a gusty, shifty, partly sunny fall day on the Buffalo waterfront, the Race Committee pulled off 16 races. The races varied from 3 to 5 legs, depending on the rotations, and in length, from 15 to 35 minutes, depending on the conditions. The spectator vibe was warm, with excellent stadium sailing. The course was set parallel to the shore, maximizing the entertainment of the spectators. Rotations were challenging due to the wind conditions, wind direction, and location of the rotation dock, but the racers did an excellent job being patient and rotating efficiently. We are looking forward to more racing tomorrow!

Sunday, October 29:

Day two of the MASSA Silver Fleet Championship started off drizzly with a shore breeze, unusual for typical Buffalo sailing. The course was set with a majority of the course being strongly affected by the Niagara River current which played a role in competitor's tactical decisions. The wind conditions were shifty and puffy due to the shore breeze and varied between 8 to 15 knots. After completing 14 races in each division, sailors headed to the dock for the day at around 1:30 pm. It was a wonderful weekend of racing and we look forward to having all teams come back to compete in Buffalo again soon!
