SSA's December 18 Laser and Laser Frostbite After-Action Report Now Available
SSA has posted the after-action report describing the events of December 18, 2016, when a strong gust front affected the standard Sunday-afternoon Laser and Laser Radial frostbite series. Thanks to all of the sailors, race committee members, and other SSA members who contributed to the report, and who are already implementing some lessons learned from the day to raise the bar on safety at SSA.
SSA Laser Frostbite Weather Event, December 18, 2016
We want to thank everyone for their concern for the safety of our sailors during and after the events of Sunday, December 18. The most important highlight is that all of 22 sailors returned to shore safely within roughly a half hour of the sudden onset of the 40+ knot winds, and there were no injuries. Each of the sailors competing was wearing the required dry-suit or full wetsuit, and a personal flotation device. During the rescue effort, 10 boats were left out on the Severn River; all had been recovered by 2 p.m. on Tuesday, December 20.
