Support Junior Sailing


The summer Annapolis events for years have been hosted in the beginning of June. Teams would sail the bay in the beginning of the summer before heading up to New England. COVID squashed all of those plans this summer but at the same time gave many sailors, particularly the juniors an outlet to still be able to participate in a sport they love. Leave the shore and social distance!
AYC and SSA moved their events to August and HYC and HRRT teams were fortunate to be able to travel to these events. These would be the culminating regattas to an incredible summer!

Pierce Brindley Laser 2020HYC and HRRT faced uncertainty in June not knowing what, if any, regattas would go forth with restrictions from COVID, nationals events being cancelled, and quite frankly a bleak hope for any travel events. However, we were able to prevail with a large local schedule throughout the summer and still allowed the ability to travel to Annapolis!

All teams sailed extremely well. In the Laser fleet Pierce Brindley and Blake Goodwin sailed one of their best events finishing in the top ten alongside training partner and teammate Kyle Pfrang who was top three at MacVicker. An unfortunate OCS and no throwout at the AYC event prevented Pfrang from dominating the fleet. Teammates Audrey Permenter, Jack Butler, and Olivia Gilmore also sailed the event having some fantastic finishes.
Blake Goodwin Laser 2020The Lasers will take only a week off before they will start Fall training. There is also hope that the team will continue to grow. The team (and coaches 🙂 are planning to compete at the Laser Atlantic Coast Championships to be held at NYCC in September.

Overall, this team excelled throughout the summer and I am very excited to see where this young team will go in the future!
