First race report:
The first race was a 2 mile, four leg windward-leeward course set at 325 and changed to 335 for the 2nd upwind leg. Dane/Sperry were first around the windward leg of the first leg after having stayed to the left side of the course, taking advantage of the lessening ebb current at the top of the leg. Following them were Reynolds/Haenel, O'Connell/Peel, Murray/Palfrey and Anosov/Caesar.
At the leeward gate, Dane/Sperry were still leading, Murray/Palfrey were 2nd, and O'Connell/Peel 3rd. Dane/Sperry played the middle left of the course, but being rightish was paying this leg, and VanderMolen/Wolfs were first at the 2nd windward mark. Following them were Murray/Palfrey, Reynolds/Haenel, Dane/Sperry and Conde/Hunn. This order held to the finish, except with Reynolds/Haenel and Dane/Sperry exchanging places and Cramer/Bjorn taking 5th ahead of Conde/Hunn.
The second race brought lighter, but still gusty winds with larger shifts up to 45 degrees.
In the 2nd race the southern California contingent continued strong with Mark Reynolds/Hal Haenel winning the race and Erik Lidecis/Michael Marzahl finishing 2nd. John Dane/Austin Sperry were third and are tied with Reynolds/Haenel for first overall in the regatta. Just one point back is Australia's Iain Murray/Andrew Palfrey.
Winning the final race (their 2nd first place in the regatta) were Rick Merriman/Rick Peters, followed by George Szabo/Eric Monroe and Argentina's Fabian MacGowan/Frederico Engelhard.
