Bayfield Race Week Wrap-up
Minimize
Bayfield Race Week 2014 showed great growth, with 48 registered boats, up from 39 last year, and the best in a long time. Boats travelled from Thunder Bay, Duluth and Houghton, as well as strong local participation.



The Mid Distance and the entry level, Jib and Main class were popular due to fewer crew requirements, more interesting courses, one race per day, and good competition.

Buoy Fleet: 10 boats
Mid-Distance A and B Fleets: 12 boats
Mid-Distance C Fleet: 10 boats
New Jib and Main Fleet: 4 boats

Racing on Monday was cancelled due to strong winds, over 40 knots at the dock! The wind died steadily over the week but recovered nicely on Friday with steady 10-13 knots.

The Around the Islands Race included 30+ knot winds, driving rain, and calm, as well as the usual, agonizing decision: stay close to the islands at the Outer Island versus go outside. The outside option paid off better! The first boats finished about midnight, with the remainder coming in until about 5:00 AM.
