Sailing to Success

(Athletics, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
 Alexander Lloyd 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 two months, 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.

Looking into the future, I have been recently selected to be a part of the sailing crew who will travel to my hometown of San Pedro, California, to compete in the Harbor Cup over spring break in March. A crew of seven will travel to this 3-day event, where we will hopefully beat the California Maritime Academy, the host of the regatta and the first place finishers of the recent Kennedy Cup.

Go Sailing! Go Bears!
