Week 3: March 24-25
The Huskies traveled to two regattas this weekend in Connecticut and Massachusetts.
Staake @ Connecticut College
Sailors Jackson Hamilton, Jackie Berlin, Kurran Singh, John Hughes, Kyle Riggs, Becker Ewing, Marika Van Dusen, Connor O’Neil, and Eleanor Grams traveled down to Connecticut College for the Staake Team Race this weekend. The wind on Saturday was light and variable, which made for excellent team racing conditions. On that day, the Huskies went 4-10 through 2 7/8 rounds. Sunday made for more challenging conditions as the wind and current picked up. On that day, the Huskies went 1-5 to finish 5-15 on the weekend and earn a 5th place finish in the regatta. The Huskies gave a solid showing in some tough conditions!
Central 2 @ MSM
On Saturday, sailors Ben Palmer, Jules Mozzer, Carter Brock, and Kelley Phippen competed in the one day regatta hosted by Massachusetts Maritime Academy. There were alternating gusts and lulls for most of the race, with the huskies taking advantage of the lifts and headers on the upwinds. Boat speed was optimal and the huskies finished midfleet, with only a couple points separating them from the leading boats and a whoping gap of 15 points between them and the bottom half of the fleet.
