America Trophy (4/29-30)
Princeton Sailing competed in the MAISA Co-Ed Fleet Racing Championships against the top 18 teams in the MAISA Conference this past weekend. Breeze on Saturday was in and out as Race Comittee and Sailors waited patiently for the best opportunity to get races off. A long hot day was finished with a stable 6 knot North-Westerly that was used to complete 7 races for both A and B divisions. Princeton Sailing was sitting in 9th place overall after day 1. On Sunday, an 8-12 knot South-Easterly breeze filled in immediately upon arrival at the ODU Sailing Center. Princeton Sailors Asher Green ‘24 and Virginia Cobbs ‘25 fought hard in the B division posting a final set of 3 and 6. Congratulations to Senior and A division Skipper Connor Mraz ‘23 for completing his last Conference Championship, and Freshman Crew Kate Feiner ‘26 for competing in her first! A massive shout out to reserves Skylor Wong ‘26 and Cole Crosby ‘26 who played a massive role in team support and nutrition/hydration specialists. The results would not have been the same without them. Princeton Sailing finished 12th overall marking Princeton Sailings’ highest finish in the modern college sailing era. Historically there has been a large scoring gap between the 12th and 13th teams in the MAISA Conference, and this regatta marks the date when Princeton Sailing closed that gap, kicking USMMA at Kings Point into the 13th rank for Co-Ed Fleet Racing.
Be sure to join us at the Princeton Sailing Reunions Event on Friday, May 26th in the Carl A. Fields Center at 3pm to recap and celebrate another successful season of sailing!
