Kyle Pfrang Finishes 3rd in Radials
One of the highlights of the weekend was Kyle Pfrang’s third place finish in the 33 boat Laser Radial Fleet. This was Kyle’s first laser career event after coming out of Optis. He sailed very consistently in a variety of conditions. Way to go buddy!
Laser Radial Team
On the Wire, Ellie Hasbrouck crews for Tyler Brown on a reach leg.
The c420s had their work cut out for them competing against six very competitive travel teams from Annapolis Yacht Club that made up the sixteen boat fleet. Tyler Brown and Ellie Hasbrouck finished a very respectable 8th. These two found themselves many times rounding in second or third but it was not reflected in their score line. Sometimes great legs were lost to tactical errors. This is an area that they will continue to work on. The team accomplished their goals for the weekend and have the discipline to amend their errors. I’m also very proud of Dinghy Development Team Members Barritt Wise and Lauren Messerschmidt. This regatta was Barritt and Lauren’s first regatta and fourth day of sailing with a symmetrical spinnaker on the 420. The team handled the variation in conditions well and we hope they continue to strive towards success.
The Mean Green Team
Will Chapman and Kieran Mason pictured with Greenies Coach Brian Fox sailed a great event. The Green Team provides excellent instruction on learning to race and highly encourages traveling to regattas! Kieran and Will both sailed a great event finishing in the top 10! Another step closer to entering RWB.
