On September 24, I traveled to Annapolis Maryland to Compete in the 2015 U.S. Sailing Team Race Championship for the Hinman Trophy. My team and I, comprised off Boston College sailors and Alumni took the weekend off of collegiate sailing to compete in U.S. championship.
The ISAF Youth Match Racing Worlds took place in Swinoujcsie, Poland, which is a very hard place to get to. Our travel itinerary had us flying into Berlin, and takin a train all the way into the small town on the German, Polish border.
Thank you so much for supporting my crew and I in the C420 North Americans! It was my first big away regatta, and although it was a pretty light air regatta, it was an exceptional experience and I was very proud to represent SDYC.
Paul Didham spent the summer sailing Laser Radials at the Youth Champs, Laser Nationals and Laser North Americans all across the country. And with large 100+ boat fleets, Paul finished Top Ten in all three events.
