The Kings Point Laser North Qualifier

By Doug Zangre '13, Sailing Team Captain

Representing the Institute at Laser North was reality-television star Nathan Fast.  Saturday brought heavy rain, wind, and thunder to the USMMA waterfront.  During the only race held on Sunday, Nate was all alone in the boat when his boom failed catastrophically.  Luckily, it wasn’t his boat and they gave him another one to sail on Sunday.

Sailing conditions were light on Sunday, similar to Cornell.  Nathan managed to get around the course three times, defeating armies of Laser sailors from colleges called Hobart and USMMA.  Nate sailed consistently to a 4th place finish out of 15 competitors, qualifying for the next round of Laser action!

Congratulations to the team for a hard fought and fun weekend.
