Because the forecast for Sunday made it questionable whether any sailing would be possible on Sunday, the race officials agreed that it was a priority to make sure that Saturday’s racing ended at a point where a champion could be determined if no racing were to take place Sunday.
Throughout the day, the goal was to complete an entire 66-race Qualifying Round on Saturday, which would have left a possibility to do Championship, Silver, and Bronze rounds on Sunday, but also would have provided a fair ranking of all teams if no further racing were to be possible.
However, at 4 p.m., the PRO, Chief Umpire, and ISSA reps met to evaluate the options. At this point, 35 more races would have been needed to complete the Qualifying Round. In consultation with individuals with local weather knowledge, the race officials deemed that it was doubtful whether this could be accomplished before either the wind or the daylight gave out.
The Sailing Instructions specified that if completing the entire Qualifying Round within the allotted time is deemed unmanageable, then the regatta would proceed based on the two-division round robin that had been completed in the first thirty races. Based on this, the decision was made to follow Sailing Instruction 188.8.131.52. and shift gears to complete a double round-robin Final Four of the top two teams from each division. This was completed at 7:20 p.m. A total of 42 races was completed Saturday, and the wind was dying as sailors came in from the final race.
Congratulations to the Severn School, the 2023 National Team Racing Champions, who were undefeated throughout today's racing. Second place was Mater Dei; the Hotchkiss School came in third and, Brunswick finished fourth.
Under this format option, the Sailing Instructions specify that “if time allows, additional round robins may be sailed to determine places 5-8 and 9-12.” These races are planned for Sunday if the weather allows.
5th - 12th place teams will rig at 8:30 Sunday and meet at 9:00. 1st - 4th should arrive by 11:00 for lunch and awards.
A full round robin of the 5th - 12th teams was planned and sailors waited patiently but conditions did not fill in. Racing was abandoned at 12:15pm. Congratulations to The Severn School.
