Ice Breaker Regatta – CYC, March 26, 2022

NTS sailors Carl Rehbock '23, Tara Hecht '25, Izzy Rietz '23, Cal Lutton '22, Ann Tokoyoda '24, George Barton '22 and Will Broseman '22, along with guest sailor Tristan Tucker '22 from Walter Payton, warm up inside at the Ice Breaker Regatta.

On March 26 we had our first regatta of the 2022 spring season. At 8:30 on Saturday morning we arrived at Belmont Harbor. Trevians 2 was George Barton ‘22 and Will Broseman ‘22 in A division and Cal Lutton ‘22 and Tara Hecht ‘25 in B division. Trevian 1 was Izzy Rietz ‘23 and Ann Tokoyoda ‘24 in A division and Tristan Tucker ’22 (of the Walter Payton College Prep sailing team)  and Carl Rehbock ‘23 in B division. 

A and B divisions both completed 8 races in the harbor on Saturday. The weather was so cold that our main sheets froze throughout the day. The wind was puffy coming from the North West. We were thrilled to come in for a pasta bar lunch at CYC. 

On Sunday we were unfortunately unable to sail due to the cold. The main sheet blocks remained frozen and this was seen as a safety hazard. 

Thank you to the Chicago Yacht Club for hosting a great event!
