With a vigorous front moving into the Puget Sound area bearing heavy rain squalls, low visibility and strong winds gusting to the high 20’s, the Lightning Fleet decided to save wear and tear on equipment and call it a regatta. In addition, the Tasars, FJs and Laser Radials decided not to sail as well. That left the 505 and Laser fleets who braved the conditions and completed the first race. A second race was abandoned after the winds picked up and the visibility made it impossible for safety boats to see capsized boats. Racing was abandoned for the day as the conditions were forecast to deteriorate.
