The Huskies were put to the test this weekend at some top notch regattas.
The Hatch Brown at MIT was the most highly attended regatta so far this season. Jackson Hamilton, Jackie Berlin, Johnny Wehner, Katie Alfond, Chris Colbeth, Sandra Nygren, Kyle Riggs, and Becker Ewing all jumped in to perform their best against the A level competition. All of our teams had their high's and low's, but it is certain to say that all teams had a great experience and gained some knowledge sailing against some of the best teams in the league. The A division pair did especially well; the sailors demonstrated good boat handling and attentiveness to shifts.
The Stu Nelson at Conn College was no easy feat, but our women's team stayed highly competitive despite the difficult wind direction and current. Elise Gehling, Coleen Ross, Camille Matile, Nathalie Garcia, and Ellie Reagan all performed well against the tough competition, and they were even able to finish in the top five quite a few times!
Peter Christensen, Annie Wieland, Matteo Alampi, and Julia Boll all attended the Callagy Ross Trophy on Lake Champlain. It had a rough start because Saturday was cancelled due to stormy conditions. Though the Huskies missed out on their big breeze, they still came back on Day 2 and snatched some top finishes.
