Port Townsend Open


Saturday, May 12:

17 teams from 11 different high schools arrived in Port Townsend to race FJs today. It was a day of good food, great people (volunteers, spectators, coaches, and sailors), and wonderful sailing.

A steady 8-12 knot breeze from the north-northwest lasted through the entire day, punctuated by a few puffs to 14 knots, and a few lulls to 5 knots. That breeze, combined with the warm air and full sunshine, made for excellent racing. The wind direction was fairly steady, but did occasional change by about 20 degrees or so; just enough to give an advantage to the sailors who knew how to play the shifts.

The steady breeze made things easy for the race committee, and allowed them to run race after race with very few interruptions; by the end of the day the sailors had completed 14 races, averaging about 16 minutes each.

Bainbridge showed both the excellence of their best crews and the depth of their entire team, with their 3 teams taking 3 of the top 4 places, including first place. Ballard was the only team to challenge them, and in the end took second place. So at the end of the day Bainbridge (with 37 points) took home the chocolate in the gold foil, Ballard (56 points) took the chocolate in the silver foil, and Bainbridge (59 points) took the chocolate in the silicon bronze foil.
