The Atlantic Coast Championship was held in Toms River, NJ this year which New Trier qualified for two weeks ago at Lake Forest’s Halloween “Spookytacular.” Alex Adams ’20, Garrett Cook ’20, Ted Lutton ’20, Anna McBride ’20, and Sammy Stoeber ’20 traveled with coach Matt Peter, as well as our Chicagoland friends from St. Ignatius College Prep.
Temperatures ranged in the 40s and 50s and the wind remained light or moderately windy throughout the weekend. The highlight for New Trier was when Garrett Cook ’20 and Anna McBride ’20 finished in 4th place in race 13A. Our low point was when REDACTED forgot her life jacket and almost missed our start. Although New Trier didn’t win any awards, we got some fantastic competition against some of the best youth sailors in the United States. Sail fast in 2020!
