The two situations at Cornell showcased separate boats.  The Jack Boehringer Regatta was contested with FJs, although competition raced 420s in the Major Red Invitational.  Due to wind problems delaying the start on Saturday and forcing an early conclude on Sunday, eight races were being finished in every single event.

Maritime entered a pair of groups in the Massive Crimson Invitational.  The No. 1 boat of John Vail (Irvington, VA) and Ben Hosford (Fairport, NY) collected 93 details to complete 14th.  Their greatest result was fourth in race two.  Maritime’s 2nd workforce of Isabelle Gauthier (Pascagoula, MS) and Nicole Schafer (Northport, NY) posted a score of 112 details, which was excellent for 18th location.

Meanwhile, at the Shields Trophy, the Privateers completed seventh overall with 36 points.  The teams concluded 6 races in their Navy 44s, and Maritime’s crew of James Willis (Huntington, NY), Alexander Intelligent (Houston, TX), Wesley Pase (Shoreham, NY), Carianna Sconzo (Rockaway Beach, NY), Sean Fogarty (Brick, NJ), Andrew Moreland (Pennsburg, PA), Morris Wilson (San Jose, CA) and Cole Swensen (Port Jefferson, NY) took fourth location in the second race.

Upcoming weekend, the Privateers’ dinghy squad will return to Cornell for the MAISA Best 9/Susan Rogers Memorial Regatta. Maritime will also send out Sonar sailors to the MAISA Match Race at the U.S. Service provider Maritime Academy.  The offshore team will be in competitors, as very well, at the American Yacht Club Drop Regatta.
