Oberg Trophy

Oberg Trophy

Maine Maritime Academy sailing was in Boston this weekend, competing at the Oberg Trophy, hosted by Northeastern.

Racing was held in a typical Charles River Breeze — shifty & puffy, but uncharacteristically the breeze stuck around all day, and 33 races were sailed. MMA was represented by Thomas Dugan (Medfield, Mass.), Corinne Poitras (East Boothbay, Maine), Duane Tardif, Cole Cleveland (Milford, Mich.), Olivia Mitchell (Bainbridge Island, Wash.) and Ellis Heminway (Portland, Maine). Boston College swept the regatta with a combined 116 points, averaging third place across three divisions. Highlights for MMA included a top finish of third place for Heminway and Poitras.

Mariners head to Bowdoin College April 27 & 28 to sail the nationals qualifier.
