Racing on Saturday began at 0945 with cloudy skies, a 16 mph average wind and gusts up to 20 mph, and a 2 - 3 foot chop. The temperature started in the mid-40s and ended up in the mid-70s by the end of the day. During the course of the day, the clouds dissipated, and the wind and chop increased as the twenty schools competed for four spots for the Mallory National Championships in June. Races were windward/leeward (LA2) with a gate and offset. The race committee moved the races into the harbor at midday and then moved them back out into the open water after the breeze settled in, with a south breeze averaging around 17 mph. After the breeze returned to the mid-20s, the race committee decided to return to the harbor and finish the day there. After the first day, it was a real battle between St. Ignatius (IL) Arrowhead, Bay, and Lake Forest.
As the day began, competitors met, and there were a few changes due to breakdowns on day one that could not be fixed by day two. The judges, OA and MISSA Rep, and MISSA President have ruled that a bye would be needed for the remainder of the regatta, with 20 teams and 19 boats. There was a strong breeze on Sunday and looming bad weather with potential thunderstorms. Race committee members tried to run as many races as possible, but as lightning and rain threatened, the race committee decided to call off the regatta. A special mention goes to Saint Ignatius (IL), Lake Forest (IL), Bay (OH), and Arrowhead (WI) for qualifying for the Mallory National Championships in San Diego. Also qualifying for the Phoebe King Regatta in Annapolis are the University of Chicago Lab School, Grosse Pointe South(MI), New Trier High School(IL), Latin School of Chicago(IL)
It is my pleasure to thank the CYC Race Committee for working so hard to provide the best racing for the underlying conditions. The team of judges for their participation on and off the water. Thank you to the sailing school staff who prepared everything. Cam Borkowski, CYC Bosun on Saturday and Sunday, deserves special accolades for all his hard work.
Congratulations and good luck to the teams moving on.
