Support Junior Sailing
HYC 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.
The 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!
