The team had a great outing at the NY state champs held at The Waterfront Center in Oyster Bay October 22. JC is the 2011 New York State Optimist Champion (1st overall, 1st Blue Fleet). Joey LaForgia was 3rd overall and 2nd in Red Fleet. Thomas Rice was 14th overall. Michelle Lahrkamp was 2nd in White Fleet. Everyone on the team had good races and showed continued improvement. Will post some pictures and results from the event soon.
