Helping the Cougars get to the top of the score sheet was Enrique Arathoon; posting just 12pts after 6 races in C division (Lasers).
The C of C Team will be looking to have another solid and consistent day of racing tomorrow to wrap up the series.
Cougars dominate at the Truxtun Umsted; taking FIRST overall and claiming the regatta championship!
The College of Charleston Sailing Team sailed an impressive regatta to take the 4 division Truxtun Umsted Trophy by 85pts.
After 14 races in Annapolis, the Cougars finished the regatta with just 211pts; largely in part due to consistent low-point sailing in both C & D divisions. The C of C Sailing Team would like to thank Navy for hosting a successful event!
Congratulations to all of our Cougars on a great weekend of sailing up North!
