George Warren Smith Trophy

George Warren Smith Trophy

MMA Sailors traveled to Boston, Mass. this weekend to sail at MIT on the Charles River. A typically difficult venue, between narrow racing area, and skyline causing shifty winds, this weekend was also made tricky by consistent light wind.

MMA sailors Ellis Heminway, David Estes, Mott Blair, Owen White, Corinne Poitras, Olivia Mitchell, August Campbell, Jack Frazier, Luke Healy & Henry Adams sailed Saturday & Sunday.

Despite finishing the regatta in the bottom half of the fleet, sailors showed flashes of success, leading almost half of the races, before succumbing to difficult conditions, and other good sailors. The sailing team will spend the upcoming weeks practicing their starting & balancing strategies as they look to travel to Darthmouth, UVM, and back to MIT.
