*For fans interested in supporting the Cougars and attending this weekend’s home regatta, the best place to spectate is the outside wall of the marina at the Walker Sailing Complex. Racing will take place right on the Cooper River by the marina in Charleston Harbor.
The Lady Cougars are 20pts ahead at the USF Women’s event after a strong first day of racing!
9 races were sailed today in St. Petersburg, and the College of Charleston Women sailors showed their talent in both the A and B fleets. The ladies are looking forward to another day of racing tomorrow, with light conditions forecasted.
As for the Charleston Spring Coed, the strong westerly winds that bought gusts upwards of 30kts did not allow for any racing to be completed today. Tomorrow’s forecast is looking much better, and the RC will attempt to begin racing at 0900.
The Women’s team sailed a successful regatta and out-sailed the 6 team field scoring just 110pts through 12 races; proving why they are one of the top women’s teams in the nation.
The College of Charleston Sailing Team was represented by two teams at the Charleston Spring Co-Ed, finishing a respectable 4th (just 6pts out of 2nd) and 15th after 6 races at an event that hosted 18 of the top collegiate sailing teams in the nation.
