Sailing: After waiting out foul weather that canceled opening day racing on Friday for the Helly Hansen National Offshore One Design Regatta, a record fleet of some 200 boats set out to do battle on multiple race courses off Annapolis on Saturday, finding challenging conditions in gusty westerly breeze, big waves, and intermittent rain. Leading 43-boat J/70 class, the regatta's largest, after three races was Californian Bruce Golison and his team on Midlife Crisis. The class also features a Corinthian division, in which professional sailors are prohibited; Annapolitans Jenn and Ray Wulff and their Joint Custody team were at the top of that leaderboard.
