March 5, 2019 Weekly Update

Due to spring break at FIT there was no practice on Saturday but there is still good news to report.  Elizabeth Johnson, one of our distinguished alumni, is now on the sailing team at Jacksonville University.  This past weekend the nationally ranked Dolphins won a regatta in Miami.  Elizabeth was crew in a boat that won seven of eight races!  Go ‘Fins!!!

Close to home, practice will resume Saturday.  The current forecast is for a good sailing day.

Ben is getting ready to go to San Diego for the BIC North American Championships 3/15-17.  There are currently 85 boats registered.  It should be an incredibly talented fleet and quite an experience. We wish Ben the best and are looking forward to hearing all about it!

Also, as mentioned before, our last weekend of sailing this semester will be practice on 4/27 and a regatta in Ft. Pierce on 4/28. Our end-of-the semester celebration will be on Wednesday 4/17 at Melbourne YC.  Kara Mathews is organizing the event with help from Lisa Mohrman and Shelley Johnson.  We’re having a really good semester so mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details about it.  Further down the road, they are also planning a big fundraiser gala for the summer.  That will kick off our sailing season in the fall.
