Team Barnegat Bay Qualifies for the US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics

Miami , Fla. (January 30, 2010) - Peeter Must (KP 05') and Carl Horrocks of Team Barnegat Bay have qualified to join the elite ranks of the US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics (USSTAG) after finishing 2nd among American competitors in US SAILING’s Rolex Miami OCR. Earning a position on the USSTAG roster signifies achieving a critical milestone as Team Barnegat Bay pursues Olympic dreams of London in 2012. The diligent training throughout 2009 that merited Must and Horrocks a place on the USSTAG is only just beginning. Team Barnegat Bay will now begin competing full time on the Olympic class sailing circuit. Must and Horrocks are now tasked with preparing for and competing in six European events in Spain, France, the Netherlands, Germany, England and Poland. A fundraiser will be held in April at the Toms River Yacht Club in an effort to alleviate the tremendous financial burden associated with Team Barnegat Bay’s Olympic campaign.
