We had a really good time down in Chestertown, MD for the Central Qualifier. This was probably the biggest regatta on our schedule for the spring. Andrew, Marisa, Katie, Trevor, Scott, Will, Craig, Matt all went down to Washington College for the event. The first day the breeze started out pretty light and built up to around 10-12 knot. It was quite shifty and a bit of current as well. We sailed from 12:30 until 6:30 (ya it was a really long day). We had a decent day; there were ups and downs (kinda just part of the deal). There were some really good teams there and we had our work cut out for us. We ended the first day in fifth and were 11 points out of third place. 

We went out for day two. There was a little more breeze still super shifty and lots of puffs. We only six races left. We didn’t get the day started off quite as well as we needed to which made it hard to move up in the standings. We ended the regatta in fifth place and both the A and B teams got fifth in each of their respective fleets. We sailed really well and had a good time, which is most important!
