Day One of the Sail22 Melges 24 Worlds Tuning Regatta is today. Teams gathered at the Annapolis Sailing School last evening to finalize registration, pick up bow numbers and meet about today's practice racing. We will run short course races with lots of extra starts to help teams get ready for the weekends regatta format. A lot of suggestions were give so we could get a plan for what the teams are looking to get out of this event. Teams seem excited and ready to get out on the water. We will start at 1pm today and Dave Ullman will be working with the teams all day. Tonight at 6pm we will have the North Sails One Design Local Knowledge Talk at the Annapolis Sailing School. Everyone is welcome. We will have photos, video and a GPS tracking debrief at this time as well. GPS tracking will be done using Velocitek instruments.
