Sailors Finish Sixth at Team Regionals, Head to Fleet Championship
The Oaks Sailing team hovered at the top of the standings for the first day of the Mid-Atlantic Scholastic Sailing Association Championship off Annapolis, Maryland, but faded on the second day to finish sixth out of 36 teams. The team heads to the Atlantic Coast Championship this weekend.
Andy Granger and Ian Stokes, senior skippers, along with crew member Layne Kennedy, led the Oaks at Annapolis. But they were supported by an improving group of underclassmen including skippers Victor Layne, Darden Purrington, and Joe Morrison, and crew members Nick Baker, Evan Maguire, and Mike Klinck. “Victor, Darden, and Joe held up remarkably well with some great plays skippering against senior crews with many years more experience,” said Ian Stokes. “Mike, Evan, Layne, and Nick crewed extremely well in challenging conditions. ”
