April 14-15, 2018:
Columbia Sailing headed up to Geneva, NY for the Grant Trophy this weekend. Missing out on the beautiful NYC weather, temperature in Geneva was in the 30s with steady, but shifty breeze coming from the north/northeast. With freezing rain Saturday night and Sunday morning racing was postponed and then cancelled on Sunday.
A Division, skipper Adam DeVita (CC ’18) and Bailey Fryer (SEAS ’18) finished in seventh while B Division Liliana Loosbrock (BC ’21) and Elizabeth Keeney (BC ’19) finished in fourth place. Thank you to alternate Charles Johnson (SEAS ’19) for supporting your teammates this weekend! With eight races in each division, Columbia finished the regatta in sixth place and has qualified for the America Trophy at St. Mary’s College, Maryland in two weeks.
Congratulate our sailors and wish them good luck at upcoming MAISA Women’s and America Trophy qualifiers!
