Vietor Trophy

Vietor Trophy

Mariners Sailing opened the Spring season this weekend with two days of competition hosted by the Coast Guard Academy. Luke Healy (Cleveland, Ohio), David Estes (Searsport, Maine), Thomas Dugan (Medfield, Mass.) and Cole Cleveland (Milford, Mich.) sailed for MMA.

Saturday brought winds ranging from 25-30kts, and lots of boats struggling to stay upright—MMA sailors stayed dry throughout the day, with top place finishes of 11 for Dugan & Cleveland.

Sunday was much milder, a light breeze that built steadily was much more favorable for the Mariners with multiple races leading, and a top finish of 6th for the day.

Racing continues next weekend at Bowdoin College.
