After an AP on shore for the Etchells, Shields and Luders at 0910 hours, the RC set “sail” for the starting area.
The bottom line is that the Etchells, Shields and Luders, after the lowering of the AP on shore, decided not to race, leaving 2 fleets for the day – ORR1 and Beneteau 36.7’s.
At the end of the day 2 races were completed for the 2 fleets.
Race 1 was 4 legs ( with a Charlie -) for the ORR1’s, and 3 legs (with the Charlie – and an “S”) for the Beneteau 36.7’s
Race 2 was scheduled for 4 legs, but resulted with an “S” to finish – a 2 leg race for both fleets.
Janet and Nick were the “STARS”of the day. Janet for stepping up to point out that the RC needed to take corrective action when shortening at the Gate (Carrier looked like a finish line outside the gate) in order to avoid a possible journey to the protest room, and Nick for aggressively, and tactfully, assisting the RO in avoiding a few (senior moment) errors.
