Whew! A fantastic day of sailing, though we could have done with less current!
If you're familiar with Olympia's unique Budd Inlet you know that we have Capital lake to the South, and when it rains they drain! Drain the lake that is. Race Committee clocked over 5 knots of current at one point. Despite a stiff northerly blowing a decent 7-1o knots sailors were almost standing still on the downwind against the adverse current. While the upwinds were a conveyor belt to the layline!
Around 4pm the wind tapered, and the nearby Farmer's market began to close. It seemed like a good time to call racing, and sailors headed out early to get plenty of sleep before day #2
...Dense fog greeted us in the morning, and it took longer than Saturday for the sun to burn it off and out trusty northerly to return - but it did at last, and we had ourselves another day of fine racing. Yes they drained the lake again, but it was tame compared to Saturday. Multiple races were sailed in both fleets and sailors races until the end time.
We had a fun awards ceremony with goodie bags for the top three teams. Overall folks were just happy to finally be sailing again after a dreary winter!
Thank you Andrew Nelson for running races, parents for being amazing volunteers, and all the teams that showed up to race.

The following chart shows the relative rank of the teams as of the race indicated. Note that the races are ordered by number, then division, which may not represent the order in which the races were actually sailed.
The first place team as of a given race will always be at the top of the chart. The spacing from one team to the next shows relative gains/losses made from one race to the next. You may hover over the data points to display the total score as of that race.
