Kinscem out of American YC during yesterday’s start.

Conditions continue to be ideal out on the course and the RC is expected to start finishing boats this morning off Stamford Harbor. According to the Kattack tracking it appears many of the Cornfield Point and Seaflower boats (sailing within Long Island Sound) are on their way back. Don’t be surprised if we see some finishers by 9 a.m. or so. Some of the returning boats are holding speeds of 6 to 7 knots and the central Sound weather buoy is showing wind speeds of 13 knots with gusts to 17 from SW. (Click here.)

On the Vineyard course the big boats are now near Block Island on their return.  Rambler is about half way through Block Island Sound holding at 14 knots while Donnybrook, Rima2, Ptarmigan6 and Conviction are approaching Southeast Light.
