Webb Sailing Team Hosts 2016 Engineer’s Cup

engineerscup1This past weekend, Webb’s sailing team hosted the Engineer’s Cup at the Webb Yacht Club. Seven teams from various colleges in the Mid-Atlantic region trekked to Webb for the regatta. Webb placed third, behind local rivals, the Kings Point Mariners, and the Stony Brook Snailers.

Saturday started off with a glassy calm, followed by some hot burgers and a freshening sea breeze for some excellent afternoon sailing. Sunday was not so sunny and pleasant, but the wind held nicely all day and even built enough for some post regatta kite boarding.

Webb would like to thank everyone who assisted with setup, clean up and water assistance during the event. We would especially like to thank Zach Backas ‘16 for organizing the regatta and Tyler Gray-Hoehn ‘18 for getting both whalers working properly.
