North Points #6 (Varsity only)


Saturday, February 24:

Racing began about 11:15 with a strong ebb tide and west winds 8-10. The wind increased quickly to over 20 with gusts in the low 30's. The fleet retuned to the dock after 3A with a strong but brief storm hitting with winds topping 50 knots. All sailors and boats came through with great team work from the entire committee and coaches jumping in (literally)to help, along with skilled sailing. Damage to the Varity fleet was 1 snapped jib halyard and most of the jib windows damaged. The JV fleet had been pulled from the water. One boat was lifted dolly and all and turned over breaking the spreader and shroud. Several spectacular videos showed the last two varsity boats being assisted back to the dock and the JIYC flag pole bending in the strong breeze. The conditions improved quickly after the storm and B division was sent out for their race 3 to ensure the regatta was in the books. Boats were off the water about 4:30.

Sunday, February 25:

Racing resumed Sunday morning with a light breeze from the north. Race 4A and 4B were completed. Racing continued but was abandoned due to light wind and strong current. About 2PM a perfect sea breeze from the south filled in. Varsity continued racing with one more A and B race. Boats were back to the dock about 4PM. Thanks go to PRO Mark DeGuire and his team for managing the crazy conditions, keeping the racing going, and most of all keeping everyone safe. Thanks also to the James Island Yacht Club staff and volunteers that gave their time and efforts to making the event successful and fun!
