Eighteen schools from 5 MASSA leagues were greeted on the Rappahannock by a seasonably warm 80 degree day with cloudless skies and SSW winds of 10-17 knots, gusts just over 25 knots and minor oscillations. Seas presented with a wind whipped chop toppling more thatn a few boats.

The day's racing concluded with Christchurch School claiming first place with the hometown advantage and 85 points, Ranney in second place with 111 points, and Annapolis High School in third place with 128 points.
Despite a gloomy forecast, partly cloudy skies gave way to periods of sun poking through with a few light showers around midday. Southerly 10 knot winds dropped to 5 at times clocking east with increasing oscillations as the day progressed.
