Argo Sailfest 2004

(11.13.04) University of South Alabama
REGATTA HIGHLIGHTS:
12 close races were sailed in a 6-13 knot North-westerly in Mobile Yacht Club's 420s with new Dabney sails. It was cloudy all day with temps in the 60's. No general recalls, no protests and racing was mostly clean all day. 2 breakdowns occurred between sets and were quickly fixed. Race 5A was slightly delayed because the RC had to rescue some old guy who flipped his canoe.

Thanks to PRO Drew Keenan and our faculty advisor, Bernard Moseby for running the races. Also Mr. Ellis Ollinger and Mobile Yacht Club were very helpful providing water for the competitors and taking lunch orders.

Congrats to TAMUG on their win. Also to Matt Barrett (TAMUG) for being low point skipper for the day, and to Astrid Palkowitsch (USA) for being the top woman skipper.

Springhill only had an A division team. 2 sailors from Northwestern University sailed the B races, so SHC scores DNS for all B races.

We took lots of video from the mark set and committee boat. We'll bring it to UNO this weekend so we can check it out between sets. Crewing on a 420 is harder than it looks.
