Last weekend (April 26th and 27th) we brought five Varsity sailors to Hawaii to compete in PCC Champs. Sam skippered in A with Kathryn and Kate crewing, and Nick skippered in B with Deanne as his crew. The weather was hot and muggy, but nothing too extreme. Saturday was a very long day of sailing; the wind had a base of about 15-18mph with 22-25mph gusts. It was very shifty the entire day. It was pretty windy, but the warm water and weather made it a bit more bearable, despite the fatigue of heavy wind sailing. There were 8 races for A fleet and 6 for B fleet; Kathryn crewed the first and last rotations with Sam, with Kate crewing the middle two and Deanne crewed all six.
Sunday started out light and rainy in the morning, with B fleet going out first. They sat on the water for a while until the wind picked up. Kathryn and Deanne sailed the rest of the day with their respective skippers. Both Sam and Nick did much better on Sunday than Saturday, finishing 4th and 5th respectively in the last races. There were12 races for each fleet, and 24 total races run throughout the weekend. It was a tiring but enjoyable weekend of racing, and we ended up in 9th out of 12 overall.
