The regatta report:

Saturday, September 28

Seneca Lake welcomed sailors with a cloudy morning and lots of fog. Thankfully the fog cleared up and the wind filled in. 8 A races and 6 B races were sailed in a southerly wind from 6-14 knots. All courses were windward-leewards, twice around, with a leeward gate. One protest was heard and it was disallowed. Thanks to Sam Blouin, Hobart 2012, for hearing the protest. Thanks to all the HWS Sailors who helped run the event.
