The Anteaters trekked up to Santa Barbara on November 15th for a weekend of sailing. 16 sailors made the journey, many of them excited to participate in their first regatta! The team finished 15th out of 24 teams overall. Nick W. skippered for Varsity A with Deanne B. as his crew. Brian MacLean skippered for Varsity B with Dominick B. and Philip T. taking turns as crew. James H. skippered for Varsity C with Addie W. as his crew. Philip T., Daniel D., and Nick K. skippered for Junior Varsity. Hunter B., Kourtney R., Carrie B., Nick P., Mary Jane O., and Hassan B. all rotated as crews for Junior Varsity. Saturday started off nicely but the wind quickly died out at around 2:30 and the race committee decided to call it a day. Sunday was a much more fun day of sailing, with stronger winds than were experienced on Saturday. New sailors were able to try out some hiking skills! All in all, 21 races were scored. Both our old sailors and our new had a great time, and the new sailors were excited to see how a regatta operates! We all look forward to our next event!
