We are incredible proud of Nikki's hard work, dedication, and true sportsmanship! Keep an eye on the co-ed fleet race finals this week. Nikki will be back at it battling it out with the best.

Tomorrow is the final day of the Team Race National. Looking good for STYC sailor Ian Barrows and the team from Yale. On Wednesday, the co-ed semifinals begin! Lots of great race to see!
The Antilles Team is back from HS Nationals with a 4th place finish. With 20+ breeze on the first day the sailors were postponed twice before they actually started racing. With the big breeze the team ended day one 4-1 in second place! On Sunday, racing was postponed again....but this time due to lack of breeze! The lighter air proved challenging and with a few loses Antilles finished the event in a tie for 4th. We are extremely proud of this team and wish our graduating seniors the best of luck next year.
We are in the last week of our spring session! Then we are on to the IOR and Summer Camp!
Our opti sailors will head off to Worlds in June as well.
Notes for the week:
1. Please help your sailor to reorganize their gear and help keep the sail room clean.
2. Have you volunteered for IOR yet? This is a great way to hang out with the sailors and support the club and the events we host. We would love your help!
3. Please be thinking about what events and training options would fit best for your sailor next year. I have attached a "worksheet" to help you get started. These are JUST IDEAS. We encourage you to share your thinking with you coaches as well. This worksheet is geared toward SAILORS MOVING INTO GREEN FLEET through POST OPTI COMPETITIVE SAILORS (420/other) If your sailor does not fit into these spaces but you are looking for more opportunity for them on the water, please feel free to make comments and send it back to us.
See you at the club!
