This morning Cait and Silber went head-to-head to kick off the first match in the Semifinal Round. They are both pretty incredible sailors, but poor grid conditions made it hard for them to display their true skills. Silber took the win, after Cait withdrew due to extreme lag in in the Second Match. Here’s Hawk’s summary of the set, and his video of the prestart from each race:

LDeWell Hawker:
“The match between Caity and Silber is over, with the win going to Silber 2 to 0.  In match 1 Caity crashed, and we had a re-start as crash was early in the pre-start.   Match 1 started successfully with Silber taking the start, and lead the entire way with a significant lead by the yellow mark.   At that point it seemed as if…Caity lost control and passed by yellow eventually crashing.   The match was ended, decision to Silber.

Match 2 Started sucessfully with Silber taking the start and gaining a lee foul against Caity. Shortly after Caity retired from the race.”
