Princeton Sailing traveled to Newport News this past weekend to compete in the Hanbury Trophy hosted by Christopher Newport University. The Saturday sailing conditions were extreme! Heavy North-West winds sustained at 29 knots with gusts into the mid-30s. Due to these extreme wind conditions, sailors only were able to complete four races before it was deemed unsafe to sail. Princeton Sailors Connor Mraz ‘23, Nelson Chow ‘23, Asher Green ‘24, and Anna Eaton ‘24 battled the elements finishing off the first day in third place overall. Sunday’s conditions brought on more tactical racing making the ten-race stretch to the finish all the more taxing. After a long day of racing, Green ‘24 and Eaton ‘24 finished 13th out of 18 boats helping Princeton Sailing finish 4th overall. Princeton’s A division, sailed by Mraz ‘23, Chow ‘23 claimed victory giving Princeton Sailing its first individual win in nearly three years. This coming Saturday, April 2nd, Princeton Sailing will be hosting its very own training event for newer team members at our new home venue Anchor Yacht Club.
