Today was another great day of racing on the Thames River. The southerly of 5-8 kts came in around 10:30 and a single round robin was sailed with 1 protest which was disallowed. A double round robin was sailed in the afternoon to determine the 9-12 place teams. Racing ended around 4:15 as the southerly was quickly dying. Sailors displayed skill and sportsmanship as well as patience with the strong outgoing current and shifty afternoon breeze. Special thanks to judges Pete Lelek, Andrew Baker, Amanda Calkins, and Henry Maxwell and to all the Camel sailors who helped out with race committee.
