Sailors 2nd at League Qualifier

September 24, 2017

On Saturday afternoon the sail team took second place in their league qualifier to earn a spot in the Fall Championship in Rochester against some of the finest sailors in the country.

The winds were fair out of the north, blowing 10 to 12 knots, but Captain Johnny Everitt felt that his team was prepared. In Division A Thomas DeRose and Ella Simmons piloted their dingy to one first place finish. Later in the day Alysa Jette replaced Simmons and helped DeRose to two more first place finishes and two runner-ups. Their worst finish of the day’s eight races was 4th place as they finished with 27 points, good enough for 2nd in Division A.

In Division B, Matt Sparacio and Hannah DiLavore never finished outside the top six in their eight races and plied the Oyster Bay waters to three 1st place and two 2nd place finishes, and a 3rd place finish. Said Captain Everitt, “This team had some really impressive finishes including one where they finished almost a minute ahead of the next boat.” Sparacio and DiLavore took 2nd place in the division by a point.

The team’s combined scores from Divisions A and B gave them 49, good enough for 2nd overall behind Rye’s 34.

Captain Everitt praised the sailors who traveled to the regatta not to compete but to lend their support to their teammates as well as his coaching staff, Brian Elliot, Wally Henry, Leslie Paige, Brad Brummeler, and Dave Tampellini.
