(02.12.05 - 02.13.05) University of South Florida
REGATTA HIGHLIGHTS:
Saturday: Seven teams completed 36 races in Tampa Bay at the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, Fl. The competitors enjoyed the sixty-five degree temperature and plenty of sunshine. Racing began at 10:20am in an 8-10 knot Northerly that weakened to 4-6 knots, and then switched to S/SW at 5-7 knots. Current was a major factor all over the race course. The collegiate "N" course was used for all races. Round Robin #2 will be completed in the morning. One protest was filed and was disallowed.

Sunday: Racing began at 10:15am in 6-8 knots from the East that died by noon. The second round robin was completed, and a Final-Four / Bottom-Three was attempted, but was not completed. BC and USF were both 2-0, CofC and UF were both 0-2 in the final four when the breeze died.
