The team as a whole had great results at the 2013 USODA Team Trials at Pewaukee Yacht Club. 195 Optis showed up for a primarily light air event. Being on a lake lead to some interesting shifts and puffs. Consistency and not taking too many risks were the keys to putting together a good score line. Pewaukee YC was a wonderful host and the Race Committee, led by Anderson Reggio, did a great job getting 11 races in.
Team highlights were
– JC Hermus 4th overall
– 3 sailors in Top 15
– 1st and 2nd Blue Fleet
– 5 Sailors in Top 50
– 4 of Top 10 White Fleet
– 12 Sailors in Top 100
