Four sailors from New Trier Sailing—Noah Barton ’19, Cal Lutton ’22, Ted Lutton ’20, and Sammy Stober ’20—joined several others from the Chicago Yacht Club to participate in the C420 Midwinters in Jensen Beach, Florida last weekend.
Chaperone Laura Lutton appreciated how well-run this regatta was. “The race committee was all over every detail, and despite the very large fleet they seemed to have everything well under control,” she said. Ted Lutton said he really appreciated “how fast the committee was able to move marks between races. There wasn’t a lot of waiting around.”
With extremely stiff competition from some of the best sailors in the country, medals were not in the cards for our sailors this year. Barton and Stober finished 66th out of the 103-boat fleet while Ted and Cal Lutton finished 78th.
