At 1:45 PM, PRO Mark Murphy made the difficult decision to cancel the 2009 BoatU.S. Santa Maria Cup A LA MODE Pro-Am. An unfortunate wind direction generating dangerous conditions to move the engineless BoatUS Santa Maria Cup J/22 fleet out of the Eastport Yacht Club marina has prompted this decision. The ten womens match racing teams are particularly disappointed to miss this great practice opportunity against some of the great sailing names from Annapolis. The PRO also announced that Wednesday’s start will be postponed until 10 AM to afford an extra hour of practice time in the morning. Pro-Am competitors and the BoatU.S. Santa Maria Cup sponsors are reminded that the Pro-Am social will still be held and will begin at 6:30 PM at EYC.
