Some amazing weeks of practice in all kinds of conditions have come to an end. The conditions were diverse and allowed for practice in all areas of boat handling. Next up are some team practices and practice regattas to work on tactics and strategy. Big thanks to the CIYC Olympic team for making this possible.
Leopold and his team had a blast racing down Long Island’s coast at the annual distance race this Saturday. After a slow start in light winds, the breeze picked up and allowed for some faster racing in wind speeds of about 10kts and boat speed of 8kts. In the end, the team won by almost an hour over the second-placed boat!
Next up for the team is Wednesday’s Big Tom Race!
Leopold and his crew competed on home waters this weekend and came away with yet another win! It’s great to see the crew’s hard work pay off and grow as a team!
Another victory for Leopold and his crew at the Washington day race!!!
A challenging race in very light winds with lots of drifting around, but it was definitely worth waiting for the wind and finishing the day with up to 18kts.
