HRRT WINS OPTIMIST TEAM RACE MEETING
ALLGEIER WINS USODA Optimist Meeting
WHAT AN EXCITING WEEKEND!!! The USODA, the national governing body of the Optimist class, the largest youth class in the world, had to cancel the Nationals that were to be hosted in Norfolk by ODU’s Big Blue Sailing Academy and Norfolk Yacht due to COVID. However, once restrictions were able to be eased, the Optimist Meeting took place this past weekend!
HRRT Wins Opti Team Race
Teams from predominately the east coast came for a Team Race on Friday where the Hampton Roads Race Team (HRRT) went 11-1 winning the event against teams from Annapolis Yacht Club, Sarasota Yacht Club, and Fishing Bay Yacht Club . The four team members included Leila Pfrang, James Allgeier, Parker Moore, and Amelon Rule.

Sailors came in from Coral Reef, Key Biscayne, Sarasota, Severn Sailing Association, Carolina Yacht Club, Annapolis Yacht Club, Fishing Bay Yacht Club, and more.

Congratulations are also in order to HRRT member Amelon Rule finishing 5th place, and also the highest female finisher. Teammate Parker Moore finished right behind her in 6th. Congratulations to all!
