Sailors 1st at SUNY Maritime Invite

Beaver in action earlier this season (PC: Bruce Jeffrey)

On Saturday, the dinghy sail team harnessed 10-14 knot winds to take top billing at the SUNY Maritime Invitational out of a 16-team field that represented the MASSA District leagues of NYISA-SE, NYISA-NW, and NJISA.

Each school had a boat in both the A and B Divisions. Each division sailed six races with the combined place totals adding up to an overall score. The East River’s flood tide during the first half of the races, and ebb tide during the remainder added plenty of nuance to the day’s sailing, but the Brookers proved more than up to the task.

In Division A, Steven Hardee and Sean Beaver piloted their craft to a pair of 1st and 3rd place finishes along with a 5th and a 10th for a total of 23 points and a 2nd place overall finish. In Division B, Gavin Hudson, Sebastian Hell, Mairead Reitzel, and Isabella Seminario were dominant, accruing a scant 12 points with four 1st place finishes and a pair of 4th place marks. The Bears’ two division total gave them 35 points overall and a seven-point edge over Christian Brothers Academy.

The Bears are back in action on Saturday in the League Team Championship.
