Our racing season has officially come to a close. We had our final regatta, the Leroy Grant, hosted by OCC down in Toms River, NJ this past weekend. On saturday the wind started out really puffy and shifty and then built up to be a solid 20-22 knots until they finally called the racing for the day. Andrew, Marisa, Trevor, and Katie raced in A division. Scott and Will did an amazing job in B-division. They won a race and got multiple seconds.

We came out on Sunday morning ready to make up for some lost ground but by 10 o'clock the breeze was a steady 27-28 with gusts of 35. They called racing, which was a bummer of a way to end the season, but thats what we get from weather dependent sports.

We finished the regatta in seventh overall. The B-division finished second in their division! We are really proud of them for that. We definitely had a good time and enjoyed getting to sail in some big breeze. It was a solid way to end the season, and we are really hopeful for what the team will be able to achieve in the fall.
