Congratulations to Emma, Charlotte and Olivia for competing last week at the US Sailing Junior Singlehanded women’s championship that was held July 15-20th at Mission Bay Yacht Club in San Diego. The event started with two days of on the water coaching and finished with three days of racing. Winds ranged from 4-20 MPH in the balmy San Diego weather. One highlight was dinner at the San Diego Hall of Champions where the girls reported the ENTIRE first floor was devoted to sailing!!
This event is funded by the Clagett Family trust and is intended to encourage young American women ages 13-18 to enhance their sailing ability, with emphasis on sportsmanship, by providing the opportunity to compete in national-level competition with guidance from high-level coaching.
