Rain Brings Breeze to Corinthians

Constant, heavy rain on Sunday wasn’t enough to deter over 60% of the Corinthian YC Midwinters fleet from showing up for the final day of the series. After being treated to a gray but dry Saturday that actually produced a little breeze, Sunday doled out a good dose of precipitation that brought the breeze with it.

Saturday was a little lighter, but better for breeze than the first Corinthian Saturday back in January. Erik Simonson was out on the water and caught this.

This year’s series was record-breaking in the entry department, with 167 boats signed up in 11 spinnaker and non-spinnaker handicap classes — including a first-ever class for cruising cats — plus three one design classes.
