Penobscot Bay Regatta

Summary

Saturday, September 9:

Steady N winds at 7 knots in the first set - gave way to shifty NNW in the second set. Meanwhile, thunderheads popped up all around. Racing called after 5A due to lightning.

Sunday, September 10:

Steady N winds at 10 knots with seven more races by 1400. A flood current reduced over earlies to a minimum and helped create flat water.

Congrats to Brown for their overall win and domination of B division, and to Mass Maritime for winning the last A race with a port tack pin start.
