In typical first race style, the fleet had to be recalled twice, prompting PRO Bill STUMP to put the I flag up for the rest of the day's racing. That settled things down, and the fleet started the first race of 2005 U.S. Junior Women's Single-Handed Championship and two more before the day was over without further incident.
With a second in the first race and two bullets after that, Stephanie ROBLE from Wisconsin is in the top spot with four points. Morgan WILSON from Maryland had a bullet in the first race and stayed in the top five for the next two races to finish the day in second, with Sarah LIHAN of Florida filling out third with a 6, 3 and a 2.
Racing ended about 1630 hours local time with showers, and a debrief by the coaches.
Four more races took place yesterday with ROBLE continuing her impressive start by adding bullets in races four and five and a second and a third. WILSON is eleven points back in second place. She slipped to finishes of 28 and 7 in races four and five before coming back strongly with two successive bullets. LIHAN was a model of consistency with four straight fourth places leaving her third overall, two points behind WILSON.
