2003 Spring Championship of the Western Hemisphere

 

46 skippers and 46 crew members comprised of Starboat Olympians, North American Starboat Champions, World Starboat Champions and other fine Starboat sailors showed up to the 2003 Spring Championship of the Western Hemisphere.

Summary of Race Conditions:
First day:
No wind until 2:00 PM.

At 2:00 PM, the wind rose from nothing to 2 – 8 knots and lasted for 2 hours. The wind direction was to the west and varied back and forth 20 degrees. According to Jack Rickard, the race committee got us out there when there was not enough wind to sail. However, it was a good call and we got one race in on the first day. George Szabo said that this regatta committee deserves consideration for St. Petersburg Trophy.

Many of the sailors stayed in shore as long as they could betting that the race committee would not have a race. However, the wind came up enough and they sailed out to join us as the light wind picked up enough for the race.

The course was a twice around windward leeward and finished to windward. The left side of the starting line was favored and the boats that won sailed on the left side of the course.

Second Day:
A wet cold day with 8 – 12 knots of wind.

We started at 11:00 AM and sailed two races. Both courses were triangle windward leeward triangle finishing to windward. The wind direction was to the east and varied back a forth 30 degrees. In Eric Lind’s words who was on the committee boat, “We were cold and wet the whole day.” The sailors from the Bahamas were shivering between races.

Third Day:
No wind, no races.

Fourth Day:
Two races were sailed in light winds.

Fifth Day:
One race was sailed in ideal 10 - 15 knots of breeze to complete the regatta.
