The Cougars have placed SECOND overall at the North Points #2 regatta in Clemson, and are currently sitting in THIRD after the first day of racing at the Bob Bavier Team Race event!

At NP #2, The College of Charleston Sailors edged out a competitive field of 12 other teams to score just 28pts through 5 races; tieing with first place team Clemson and narrowly losing the championship spot on a tie-breaker. Congratulations to our sailors on a great series!

Meanwhile, after day 1 of racing at the Bob Bavier Team Race regatta here in Charleston- the Cougars are in a comfortable third (just 1 win out of first), and looking to capitalize on a full day of racing today.
The second C of C team is sitting in ninth, and will also be looking to climb up the score sheet.
Yesterday, the Race Committee did an awesome job in getting 65 races off in a light and shifty breeze, it’ll be interesting to see what today’s racing has in store.
