Great day of racing despite the forecast. We completed 10 races in each division. We had a slight delay in the morning but race 1A eventually started at 10:46. A thunderstorm that went just the the east of us forced us to abandon race 10A and 10B and reset the whole course from the new southerly direction. Racing concluded at 1745. All courses were trapezoid and winds ranged from 0-12 from the NNE and then 6-8 from the SSE. We had a few protests at the end of the day resulting in a few DSQ's and only minor BDK's. Thank you to the coaches who helped hear them. The USMMA Midshipman did a great job setting courses all day!


After a summer of rest, coaching gigs and internships, sailors return to their respective schools and look to the water, the 2017 ICSA Fall Season is upon us. With regattas starting in early September and ending in mid-November, spanning from coast to coast, the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) will sanction hundreds of regattas just this fall alone.

With so many quality regattas slated for the upcoming weeks, including singlehanded and match racing national championships, this Fall will prove to be an exciting one. All three fall national championships will be held in SAISA. The ICSA Match Racing National Championship will be held at the College of Charleston, in South Carolina, host of last spring’s championships. The Men’s and Women’s Singlehanded Nationals will take place in St. Petersburg, Florida. These three national championships help set the tone for the season, coupled with a women’s and coed fleet racing season which culminates in the Coed and Women’s Atlantic Coast Championships, held at SUNY Maritime College in New York and Connecticut College in Connecticut College respectively.
