We sent six sailors to New York this weekend to compete at the Admiral Moore Team Race Regatta. The team got a lot of good team racing practice in, as they kept up with each team at the event.
On Saturday, one round robin was completed, as the wind died throughout the day from 15 knots to nearly 0 knots. We had a race thrown out due to no wind while we were on the second upwind of the race. Overall, we had pretty successful Saturday of sailing.
Saturday evening, our sailors went into New York City to watch the Michigan Basketball game! To celebrate the big win, we roamed around Time's Square and explored New York City, making a new friend (pictured to the left)!
Sunday brought heavier winds and stronger current as we finished out the second round robin and ending the regatta. We are looking forward to using the experience to practice our team racing before Team Race Quals in April.
We are so thankful to our hosts for giving our sailors a place to sleep and feeding them while we competed at this event.
