The afternoon racing featured four races against St. Ignatius (San Francisco). Baker split the four races with the Baker Varsity 8+’s winning and SI taking the Girls Lightweight and Boys JV events. Conditions in the afternoon were very gusty with a quartering headwind which greatly slowed down times.

Mount Baker finishes their racing weekend tomorrow morning with a series of races against Pacific Rowing Club (San Francisco) except the Lightweight Girls who race Mount St. Joseph (Philadelphia). Weather is supposed to stay windy through the day tomorrow, but the course is very well protected so racing should not be adversely affected.
