June 30, 2012: There was a strong ebbing tide throughout the day; racing took place in Pipe’s Cove. The wind was around 6 knots, with gusts to about 11 knots from the west. The fleet had a different course this week, with the windward mark having an offset leg, as well as a leeward gate set above the finish line. This course was used in order to practice for the upcoming Nationals in August. The wind shifted right throughout the day, with the course being adjusted accordingly. In the final, 3rd race, of the day the wind shifted drastically to the West/Southwest; which significantly separated the fleet, depending upon which side of the course was used. The sailors that were on the left side of the course were able to be on layline early. There were three races completed and the top finishers for the day were: In fourth, Bruce and Susan Brewer; third, Steve Schram; second, Chip Luddecke; and in first, Angus MaCauley and Alexander.
