North Spring Qualifier

By Doug Zangre '13, Sailing Team Captain

On March 30, the Webb Sailing Team headed to gorgeous Ithaca, NY to sail the MAISA North Spring Qualifier at Cornell University.  Temperatures were below 40°F for much of the weekend, but that didn’t stop Webb from bringin’ the heat.  A division was sailed by Nathan Fast and Cody Stansky, while B division was sailed by Doug Zangre, Casey Brown, and James Codega.  Thirty races were held in total, and Webb finished in 5th place out of 15 teams.  Being in the top five, the team will now advance to the America Trophy, the District Championships at Navy!  This is the first time in recent history that the team has qualified for this event, and we are looking forward to races to come (and warmer weather).
