Another huge weekend for the Huskies, both in terms of regattas attended and successes. Teams show off their positivity and camaraderie in the middle of all the action.
The Loder Trophy hosted by UNH at MIT was most likely the most difficult regatta of the weekend condition wise. Saturday was full of some extreme 90 degree shifts which made it difficult to get races off. Sunday had more consistent wind, but the Charles still threw some unpredictable "auto-tackers."Chris Colbeth, Sandra Nygren, Carter Rose, and Annie Wieland stuck with it though and were consistently around midfleet. They were even able to have a few top and above mid fleet finishes.
Sofia Kirkman, Carolyn Corbet, and freshman duo Kyle Riggs and Becker Ewing dominated the Central 3 at Mass Maritime this weekend. Both pairs were loving the big breeze, and they demonstrated so as they skillfully maneuvered in the puffs and oscillating shifts. Together, the pairs managed to hold first place for the entire weekend.
Jackson Hamilton, Jackie Berlin, Johnny Wehner, Katie Alfond, and John Hughes performed extremely well at the Hood Trophy at Tufts, an A level division regatta. Conditions were shifty as usual and fairly puffy, however the Huskies fought hard in the close fleet and even scored some top finishes. Tough weekend no doubt, but one to be proud of!
The ladies took on the Amanda Trophy at Roger Williams this weekend. Despite the difficult wind direction, Elise Gehling, Laura Tschiegg, Camille Matile, and Nathalie Garcia pulled through and got some bullets along with a few other top 3 finishes. The team finished above midfleet. Well done, ladies!
Last but not least, Ian Campbell and Donal Ryan took on the Ross at Courageous. The fleet was competitive and extremely tight; the pair was consistent and finished in a three way tie for 6th place.
