Sailing Into a New Season

The Ursuline Sailing Team is back in full swing after a long break. This semester they will not be sailing against other teams. But with 28 sailors, the team has a lot of competition on its own roster! The 9th-12th graders are divided into cohorts of 4-5 sailors. Each cohort is its own team for scrimmages, with two boats making a team and eight boats on the water. The first scrimmage was cut short due to approaching thunderstorms, but these sailors were able to get three races off with great wind, big waves, and light rain. The senior Mac cohort used their years of experience to win the day in the challenging conditions.

The team sure loves to sail in the new ZIM Sailing 420 that was purchased by New Orleans Yacht Club. Thanks New Orleans Yacht Club and Zim Sailing!
