On April 23rd and 24th, 2022 New Trier Sailing competed in the MISSA Mallory Qualifier at Chicago Yacht Club’s Belmont Station. This regatta was a qualifier for the Mallory fleet racing national championship.
Throughout the day races were sailed both in and out of the harbor due to high wind speeds. In A division, George Barton ‘22 and Cal Lutton ‘22 sailed the races out of the harbor while Lucy Elvart ‘24 sailed the races in the harbor. In the B division Caroline McClain ‘24 and Will Broseman ‘22 sailed all the races. The races in the harbor had shifty and patchy winds, while outside the harbor consistent high winds prevailed. After changing in and out of dry suits and coming in and out of the harbor countless times, sixteen total races were completed.
New Trier Sailing placed 7th overall against the best teams in the Midwest and qualified for the Phebe King regatta in Annapolis, Maryland!
Thank you to CYC for hosting a great event.
