Eric Horrocks '11 at E-Scow Eastern Champs

From Eric Horrocks at the E-Scow Eastern Championships in Mantoloking, NJ.

First Day


Well today was the first day of sailing and it went really well. We took some good pictures with the burgee up and I cant send them because I can't seem to get them off the my camra. Anyway it was about 5-10 mph and choppy. The first race we had a 7 I think. It was very light but we pulled through. The second race went really well. We rounded the first mark 5th then down wind lost a little but came out with an 8. We are very pround with how we are doing and are showing off the KP burgee as much as possible. Tomorrow its going to be windy and we are pumped. I will email you tomorrow with a update and some pictures.


Second Day

Well today went really well it was blowing 10 to 15, we had a 13 in the first race thats wasn't to good but we were happy with it. The second race we won. We started at the pin and port tacked the whole fleet. It was the coolest feeling inn the world being able to see the whole fleet in your window. The final race today was a 15 but overall we are tied for 5th with some racing left tomorrow so we are very pumped. Here is a website that has a ton of pictures from yesturday and some of today. Our sail number is LA-12 we are wearing the bright neon colors.

Great job Eric, 7th in a highly competative fleet of 33, in a very technical boat to sail is something to hold your heads high about.

Go Mariniers, Beat Coast Gaurd!
