This weekend CUST made the trek up to Geneva, NY to compete at the MAISA North Fall Qualifiers hosted by Hobart and William Smith on Seneca Lake. Coach Conor Cashel, Adam DeVita, Elizabeth Keeney, Nicholas Houchois, Bailey Fryer, Calvin Tong, and Fernand Le Fèvre traveled to charming Geneva for the weekend’s competition.
On Saturday morning A division headed out on the water in light breeze that quickly died. After an hour and a half of floating, the breeze picked up enough to get a set off. Shifty and variable breeze ranging in 4-14 knots from the North presented challenges throughout the day. After six races were completed in both the A and B division, CUST was standing in 7th place out of the fleet of 15 boats. Sunday, sailors waited until 1:30pm for breeze that never came -- though sad they weren’t able to sail, CUST sailors can’t complain about the opportunity to bond and catch some z’s in the sun on the shore of the beautiful Seneca Lake.
Finishing in the top 10, CUST moves on to the Luce Regatta qualifiers in a few weeks!
