Charter Optis UnloadingThe regatta kicked off today with most all of the Team Racers and coaches arriving on site. Registration and measurement was open all day as sailors got checked and had a chance to get settled. Many teams launched and went out to the sailing area for practice in the middle of the afternoon.

Not only was today the first day for the sailors to be on-sight, but it was also the first day for staff and volunteers. Everything went pretty smoothly and the volunteers did a great job getting everything going. There were a few hiccups but nothing major and everything started falling into place.
