AYC Fall Series Weekend One dominated by loulou

Light air ruled weekend one of American YC Fall. 15 boats registered. Day one had the first race go to loulou. After a poor start, loulou consistently dug right to the lifted breeze to pass Eclipse and Revelation at the top mark never looking back. In the second race, Eclipse got away clean and had a big lead only to have the wind die and the race was abandoned. Day 2 started with a dead calm. Young American had fun ghosting around with their Save The Sound reacher while the rest of the fleet waited. Sun awnings were the order of the day. When it looked like the day would be lost, a nice 7 knot breeze suddenly appeared and the RC got a race off. The pin was favored. loulou was there and led wire to wire. Paul's comment was "Some boats are sporting flatter jibs which point well in breeze but seem to struggle in lighter air. We were using our regular jib cut and had very good upwind wheels." loulou has 2 points followed by Revelation with 6 and Conundrum with 7.   Complete results
