A handful of wonderful ladies from Gamecock Sailing were able to attend Charleston Women's regatta hosted at College of Charleston. We were up against 13 talented teams ranging from northern teams like MIT and URI, as well as a few teams from SAISA such as NC State and Eckerd. Margaux Bacro-Duverger and Meriwether Roberts sailed in A fleet and kicked off the first race of the day with a respectable 7th place in 420s. B fleet’s best race was an 8th, skippered by Kate O’Donnell and crewed by Ashley Thess. Our focus of the regatta was improving our starts as well as becoming more familiar with the FJs. Coach David Van Cleef was instructing us from the water on Saturday and encouraged us to be more aggressive at the starts as well as try different ideas. We are excited to take our new skills to Clemson this weekend where we will be sailing in FJs again.
