What a weekend for the Huskies as we pass the midseason point!
Biggest success was earned at the PC Invite at Providence College. Zach Bresnick, Connor Oneill, Kyle Riggs, and Becker Ewing landed a third place overall finish out of 15 boats. Scores were extremely close, but the boys came through and stayed consistent from the beginning to the end. This is the highest scoring regatta that the Huskies have sailed so far this season.
The Huskies also crushed the competition at the Great Herring Pond Open at Mass Maritime. Camille Matile, Nathalie Garcia, Chris Colbeth, and Sandra Nygren took on the infamously shifty conditions of Mass Maritime and also had a third place overall finish. Camille and Nathalie had a great first day as they earned some bullets. Sandra and Chris also had consistent top three finishes the second day.
While conditions were bearable and even breezy here in Boston, it was a different story at the Truxtun Umstead at Navy. Jackson Hamilton, Jackie Berlin, Johnny Wehner, Katie Alfond, Peter Christensen, John Hughes, and Coleen Ross represented Northeastern in FJ's, Lasers, Radials, and Z420's. The wind was light with some few major puffs, and Sunday was extremely dead until a nice southerly came in. Even though we sent some of our bigger sailors to this event, the Huskies fought hard through the difficult conditions.
Last but not least, on Saturday at the MIT Invite, Ian Campbell, Julia Boll, Will Manning, and Romain Astie raced in the fly's. Both pairs had no experience sailing together and conditions were light with considerable oscillations. However, the teams did reasonably well as they stuck around midfleet.
