Fall Semester

(Athletics, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
 Alexander Lloyd It’s hard to believe that it is almost Thanksgiving, with finals and winter leave less than one month away. The past month has flown by; I have been busy. With some sort of test every week and a project in nearly every class, I have had a lot on my plate. While this year’s academic workload is much heavier than 4/c year, I am definitely more interested and excited to learn in my more major-oriented classes.

It is easy to say the highlight of the fall semester has been my involvement with the Academy’s offshore sailing team. With a series of major collegiate big boat regattas over the past month, we were able to end the season on a very high note. From taking second in the J105 class in a regatta in New York to winning the Macmillan Cup (considered the East Coast big boat championship) to our most recent second place finish in the Kennedy Cup (considered the national championship of collegiate offshore sailboat racing), our offshore sailing team did a very good job at establishing credentials as one of the best teams in collegiate big boat sailing. While the season has come to a close, the spring season and summer sailing are not too far over the horizon. I look forward to see what next season has in store.

As winter is coming near, I wish the best of luck to high school students in their college applications. Happy Thanksgiving!
