Diana takes 2nd, Renegade 2nd, and Hypnos 3rd in Light Air Greenwich Cup

The Offshore Team performed well in this weekend's light air on Long Island Sound, finishing high in this years Greenwich Cup. Skipper Pat Ambrose '10 aboard Diana managed to finish within the time limit to secure 2nd place, while Hypnos', skippered by Bubba Suggs '11, 3rd place on Saturday was enough to take the trophy.  I somehow missed Renegade, skippered by Logan Kolterman, which finished second!  Congrats to all the boats.  Also recieved a very nice email today- I love it when I get these!!

I thought you should know we sailed this weekend against three different boats from your school. Afterward one group came to the award ceremony. I must tell you these young men and women did a tremendous job representing themselves, the Academy and you. Not only we they tremendous sailors, they were also very polite, poised and well behaved. We happened upon two of the cadet’s in search of food for their team’s return trip. I ended up giving them a ride to and from the local grocery. All in all, your group elevated The Greenwich Cup and were a very positive influence on all involved.

Congratulations on having such a good group.
