This evening following racing will be awards and a competitor’s dinner. Anna Tunnicliffe, an Olympic gold-medal winning Laser sailor will be here to talk to competitors and to help hand out awards.

While the girls are sailing, the rest of the boys and green fleet sailors will be arriving, getting measured and checked in. Many of them will be heading out on the race course for practice. Keep an eye on the webcam to see a lot of boats going in and out of the creek this afternoon.
