        Saturday April 11th , Villanova sent a team up to New Jersey to sail in a regatta hosted by Ocean County College at Tom's River Yacht Club. The wind that day was shifty at best with gusts blowing anywhere between 10 and 30 knots. Domenic Re ('15) sailed A fleet with crews alternating between Alex Heid ('15) and Liz Day ('18), while David Alldian ('17), Julianna Lee ('17) and Lawson Buckley ('18) sailed in B fleet. By the end of the day, Villanova secured second place in A division and first place in B division. Overall, the team tied for first but was awarded second place due to a head-to-head tiebreaker. With only nine teams participating, the Race Committee called the regatta off for Sunday and everyone quickly left to enjoy the rest of their weekend. It was a great regatta to prepare for the spring qualifier the next weekend.
