ICSA Match Racing National Championship

We get a little busy with things around here sometimes (OK, all the time) and sometimes I forget to mention some things that we are doing.....Such as hosting the first ever College Sailing Match Race Championship Regatta to be held November 19-21 at USMMA. We certainly do not take this lightly, and have been working hard behind the scenes to prepare for a spectacular regatta. Where do we start? How about boats? The USMMA Sailing Foundation came through to purchase us 6 brand new Sonars, and Shumway Marine is loaning us 4 more.

Getting the new boats ready

What next? How about lining up some great talent to help us run the Regatta? Bill Hardesty, KP '98 and The Chicago Match Race Center have jumped in to help with live video streaming and event organization. How about a commentator for the video? Dawn Riley will share her America's Cup experience and Match Racing expertise. How about our team? Well, they have to qualify at a home regatta in early November, but they have been on the water sparring everyday, and most weekends have been match racing in Oyster Bay with Oakcliff Sailing Center, so we hope they are as prepared as they can be!

Our Team on the Water
