Phoenix Cup Regatta Results



More Information:  Saturday was overcast with poor visibility all day.  Precipitation varied from heavy mist to moderate diagonal rain at times.  Temperature was a cool 66 degrees and foul weather gear was the standard.  Despite the rain, there was fairly steady 10-12 knots to start the day and RC ran three races in area A.  The first two races were 5 legs with an offset rounding at the windward mark.  The wind moderated for the 3rd race, of 4 legs,  but there was still enough for a beautiful kite reach home in 9 knots.  The fleet enjoyed taco bar and open bar on the SSA patio to finish the day.  Day two saw much start the day, up to 4 knots, as the fleet beat straight into the wind fighting to reach the race area.  As everyone arrived the sun broke though and the wind dropped to 1-1.5 knots.
