The final day of racing again saw mostly clear skies, but a little more finicky wind. We were able to get in one long race today with winds of 6-8 knots easing in the last half of the race. With this race, the total count for the regatta was 10 races which gave the competitors another throw out. Interestingly, the additional throw out did not change the positions of the top 5 sailors from yesterday. Congratulations to Riley Gibbs and Reeve Dunne for a well sailed regatta to capture first place and become the 2016 North American Champions.
The organizing committee would like to extend our sincere thank you to the sponsors for all of their support, to the race committee for their hard work in providing fair, challenging races, to Mike Allsop for hosting the spectators on his yacht La Siesta, to all of the many volunteers who helped in a myriad of capacities to make this regatta a success, to the judges who donate their time and expenses to ensure the racing is fair, and most of all, to the competitors for making their way to Bellingham to race in our beautiful venue. We hope to be hosts to the 505 fleet for more of these events.
