More Information: The wind was mild on the first day and three races were run at race area A. The racing was tight with lead changes at many of the marks. Winners balanced constant shifts against the stacking waves on the shallow left side. Crew work was outstanding on all boats, making tactics the deciding factor. The fleet enjoyed burgers and open bar on the SSA patio to finish the day. Day two saw more moderate wind start the day, and one and a half races were run; the second race being shortened after two legs to the relief of all.
