The Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship race committee ran just one race yesterday on the Chesapeake Bay before it canceled the second race and sent everyone back to the dock.

With 18- to 25-knot winds packing 30-knot punches, the four-person crews worked aggressively to keep their 22-foot boats under control, while several teams experienced harrowing knockdowns that tossed crew members overboard while pinning masts to the water and exposing white underbellies of hulls.

Sally Barkow (Nashotah, Wis.), a two-time college All-American from Old Dominion, faltered only once during a spinnaker set and is now the regatta's leader by a 20-point margin over Paula Lewin (Paget, Bermuda).
